Delivering Agile Results on a Fixed Scope Contract
"What happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object?" In this case, the immovable object is a contract with extensive requirements embedded in the scope and no flexibility for leveraging agile methods. The unstoppable force is the Agile delivery team determined to find a way to make agile methods work even with this seemingly insurmountable hurdle. The solution is a combination of proven strategies to transform this rigid contract into an agile platform for delivering the highest value features that emerge as the project progresses instead of "iterative waterfall" delivery against a predefined scope.
In this interactive session, attendees will get multiple techniques for adapting fixed scope contracts to align with Agile methods such as identifying the flexible contract terms that you can leverage, turning detailed requirements matrices into adaptable product backlogs, and retrofitting your agile deliverables to align with contract milestones. Attendees are invited to send examples of their current contracts to [email protected] for resolution at the session. Please ensure that you remove all identifying information before sending the contract.
