Basic Contracts Quastions

  • How is the contract structured?

  • How does it handle changes in scope (requirements)?

  • How does it apportion Risk and Reward between customer and supplier?

  • What model of customer relationship does it foster: competitive (my win is your loss), cooperative (win-win), indifferent (I don’t care-you lose) or dependent (heads-I-win-tails-you lose)?


Fixed Price / Fixed Scope


Time and Materials


Time and Materials with Variable Scope and Cost Ceiling


“Money for Nothing, Changes for Free”


Recommendations

  • Although all of the above will work. “Money for nothing, changes for free” contract turns the advantages of the Scrum and agile development processes into a competitive advantage.

  • By prioritizing and delivering business value incrementally, the chances of an outright failure are dramatically reduced. This advantage is passed on to the customer.

  • Furthermore, it’s a cooperative model, so it offers incentives to both parties to keep the costs down.

  • The early cancellation clause rewards the higher productivity achieved with Scrum teams. On the down side, this clause feels a bit like a 'golden parachute' which may not be politically acceptable in the current economic climate.

The contract form lays the important groundwork for a successful project. And the Agile Manifesto got right: working with the customer is more important than the contract. So whatever you do, keep the customer relationship positive!
