My “Fixed Price Agile Projects” talk has been getting some traction. Originally broadcast by the PMI Agile Community of Practice, it’s recently been picked up by PMI as part of their On-Demand Webinar series. It’s a free download for PMI members, but in case you’re not a member, I’ve posted the slides below. Meanwhile, I’ll be presenting the talk in person at the PMI Washington DC Symposium Next Week. So if you’re free, stop by and check it out.
Here’s the abstract:
Agile experts tell us fixed price projects are immoral and declare that agility can only be delivered on a slippery schedule and budget. But what about the real world? What about fixed deadlines and fixed budgets? What about projects that are selected based on schedule and cost? How do you agile that? In this session, you will learn key principles for achieving agility in a fixed-price environment. Come discover how to achieve what agile experts tell you is impossible.
