SPEECH: Legal risks management in contracting for agile software development projects
Agile project methods are used more and more often and have become indispensable in the IT field. Agile processes allow for changing requirements over time and emphasize close cooperation between the contractor ant the customer as well as promote early product delivery and continuous improvement.
However, contracting for agile software development projects can still be a challenge, since it requires new approaches not only in practical implementation of agile methodology, but also from a legal point of view.
