Identify and Reduce Agile Contract Risk

Discover the differences between Agile and non-Agile contracts and how to protect yourself.

Onsite Workshop

Failure to understand the differences between Agile contract provisions and traditional or waterfall contract provisions subjects a reviewer/negotiator to:

  • Unnecessary or surprise payment obligations.
  • An inability to terminate the contract when appropriate.
  • A lack of a meeting of the minds.
  • Focusing on the wrong issues when negotiating.

Understanding what provisions to focus on for an Agile contract allows for:

  • Better flexibility for the customer.
  • Increased awareness of potential risks.
  • Avoiding contracts full of Agile buzzwords without employing actual Agile principles.
  • Creating an Agile work environment for the project.
