Contracting in an Agile Project EnvironmentDuration: 1 Day 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Continuing Education Hours: 8
Many organizations are being challenged with technology procurement activities as more and more work has an information technology (IT) or other creative development component. One reason is that many organizations prefer their suppliers to use the newer Agile methodology for contracted work. The challenge is manifest in that there is a mismatch between standard contracting practices and the Agile methodology. Previously used development methodologies used versions of traditional project management (sometimes called waterfall) which aligned with contracting practices (i.e., for a RFP, the buyers defined the work to be done and resulting deliverables in the SOW, and the potential vendors responded with their proposals of how they would do the work and how much to bid for this effort). Agile methodologies do not allow the definition of the deliverables prior to contract award and the work starting, which significantly challenges and complicates contracting activities. This course looks at contracting approaches that agencies can use which synchronize with the newer Agile approach and allow them to function successfully in this environment.
