How to create that contracts the create value

 

Very few procurement and legal professionals truly understand how software gets built or the agile development process. As a result, it's common for contracts to lack the flexibility needed to support the agile process, which can cause a host of inconveniences and bureaucratic hurdles that get in the way of progress. We believe, that by educating procurement professions on the agile process we can start developing value-based contracts that actually support project success versus typical contracts that exist primarily to mitigate risk. 

This whitepaper explores topics including: 

  • The underlying motivations behind procurement decision making 

  • How to focus contracts on desired business outcomes rather than pure risk abatement 

  • Engagement frameworks and how to choose between the contracted variables of time, money, or scope 

  • Best practices for common contract terms
