Agile Contracting for Internal and External Projects

How can you combine agile development with constraints of contracts and regulations?

International, virtual teams are more and more the rule in software development projects. Customers, suppliers and development partners define their cooperation for a project, work together for a while, then split, then come back together in a different form for a new project. Many projects occur in a strictly regulated environment.

In this open space event for line managers, contract managers, product managers, legal specialists and other people involved with requesting and supplying software development services, Heitor Fihlo, you (the participants) and I will examine the issues and co-create the solutions to your problems and your issues with contracting for agile software development services.
