Working Group Formed to Produce Reusable Agile Contracts

Agile processes are an obvious choice for development work within a business, but have traditionally not sat well when dealing with customers and contracts who like to specify detail, delivery and price before work starts. Negotiators and lawyers have no obvious answers to hand and, rather than take the risky route of creating a new agile contract, usually fall back to the apparent safety net of an implicit waterfall process.

If there were some example “agile” business contracts available, some of the risk for the contract negotiators might be removed.
