Agile Manifesto's 3rd principle states "Customer Collaboration over Contract Negotiation". Agile project management delivery models require supporting financial models that fund MVP, learn from that and provide an ability to pivot if needed. Generally, 20 weeks of funding is the recommended max funding. How do we ensure the right product is being built and at the same time maintain Agile values of Openness, Respect, and Commitment?

Traditional funding models have a staggering 70% failure rate. Agile Project Managers are finding shortcomings in existing financial models such as Fixed Bid, Time & Materials (T&M), and CostPlus Contracts. The existing models do not meet the needs of Agile Projects. In this talk, we will look at newer improved financial frameworks such as Lean budgets, Program Increment (PI) based project funding and Lean Startup funding that reduce risk and that work in tandem with Agile Project Management.


Learn about agile Contracts

Learn about lean startup and how to fund the MVP and create contracts around it

How to fund only important features and learn from that experience as we go along

How to create collaborative contracts and avoid long term contracts

How to share risks and rewards between suppliers and customers using collaborative contracts
