Can agile and fixed cost projects go hand-in-hand?
Fixed cost projects are a reality in today's world. All clients wants to know in advance, the money they will have to spend and the precise return on investment for it. This thinking poses a serious challenge to the team executing the project on the ground as there could be gaps at every step in the contracting process and thereafter. There is a continuous scope for making incorrect assumptions at both ends. It is highly unlikely event that a end-client will not throw in new changes after a iteration. This often causes the fixed-cost & fixed scope concept go into a tizzy. Apart from this, Agile's adapatability and openess to embrace change is also a misunderstood concept.
This session aims to cover the challenges that come in a fixed bid project and how to overcome them.
