A methodologically refined, entire method of making use of the Agile fixed-price agreement to IT tasks whereas maximizing shopper and provider relationships

"Interesting and worthy for IT managers and IT lawyers."
—Walter J. Jaburek, Dipl.-Ing., Dr. iur., Dr. techn.

Approximately 50 percentage of software program builders use Scrum, an iterative and incremental improvement procedure for dealing with software program initiatives and product or software improvement, of their paintings. the good thing about Scrum and different Agile tools is they can handle shifts in a wide venture that conventional managerial equipment cannot.

The excesses of this deviation (unfortunately, of course, also handled by a traditional fixed-price contract) can cause unpleasant additional costs and shift delivery dates, escalating to the point of resulting in “black swans”(see Chapter 1).

This is, however, exactly what happens in software development for large waterfall-driven fixed-price projects. • Wrong requirements. If we recall the results of various studies from Chapter 1, the requirements in software projects vary by up to 3% per month. Therefore, in one and a half years, half of the requirements will change (and you can be certain they will). In contrast to the decline of knowledge, it actually involves changing the starting point in the requirements. This is probably the most serious drawback of the waterfall model and/or traditional contracts that cannot handle this nature of IT projects.

We educate ourselves continuously to correct weaknesses. 10. Keep it simple, stupid (KISS) “Simplicity. ” How do we behave as a customer? • We check constantly whether we still require what we requested. • We cancel projects if we already have what we need. • We accept contracts that allow us these things. How do we behave as a service provider? • We deliver from the start the features that are most valuable to the customer. • We favor short project lead times. • We deliver fast, we deliver functionality, and therefore we do not bill in hours.
