1 Agile and fixed bidsFixed Bid and Agile
submitted 2 years ago by admin(1) | agilejournal.com | no comments
Scott has an interesting opinion about fixed bid agile projects:

1) It is unethical for teams to do fixed bid projects.

2) It is questionable at best for customers to request this, and grossly incompetent if they're a "repeat offender".

Yet, he confirms that it is still possible to go Agile with such projects !

In an agile project one of these factors (time, budget, scope) must be variable - preferably the scope.

Author suggests that

1)If scope change comes too late in the project, then it is better to re-work the SOW instead of squeezing the scope change.

2) If the scope change comes in the middle of the project, we accommodate the changes by pushing out low priority items of similar size.
