Over the last year or so, I’ve been considering all the various lessons that I’ve learned throughout my IT career, and in particular during the last few years as I’ve really embraced Agile methodologies. I realized that there is a definite intersection between many of my lessons learned, the types of experiences I’ve had, and some of the biggest burning questions in the world of Agile methodologies.
To help explain this epiphany, I created a handy Venn Diagram.
Based on this highly scientific research of your interests, I have concluded that we really should talk. You have customers who, like you, know that teams using Agile methodologies deliver the best software. Furthermore, Agile teams tend to deliver value faster and in smaller budget chunks.
Unfortunately for you, your customer has heard the hype too and taken it to a dangerous conclusion:
Hey, this is great. They can give me better software, do it faster, and make it cheaper, and I get to change my mind whenever I want about the features! This is so cool, the only thing that could make it better is if I make them do it for a fixed price so I have nothing to lose!
I’ve been on fixed price Agile projects that went well, and others that … well, they weren’t so profitable. But that’s good for you, because I’m going to share those lessons with you in a free webinar. I’m not a magician, so I can’t tell you how to get the best of all worlds, all the time, guaranteed, or your money back.
But I can share with you some really useful strategies that will make a big difference in your projects.
So, what are you waiting for? You can sign up for my January 18th webinar here:
Make sure you get 2011 off to a good start, and don’t lose your shirt on fixed price Agile projects!
