Agile Contracting Manifesto Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Agile Contracting Manifesto?
    Lean Gathering #1 Malmö 2011-04-14
    Anders Sixtensson
  • 2. Contracts/Measurement creates behavior
    What is the desired behavior for a Purchaser and a Supplier leading to increased profit for both parties?
  • 3. A “good” Purchaser
    can formulate a clear purpose/goal
    understands what gives value and when to release
    break down "the whole" into shippable parts and to rank these parts relative each other
    is present and gives prompt feedback to Supplier
    3
  • 4. A “good” Supplier
    delivers potentially shippable parts, early and frequently,
    and continuously do this better and better
    can adapt and handle change
    understands the end-user and pro-actively come up with new ideas and innovation
    self organize in best possible way to solve problems
    4
  • 5. How about the win-win and increased profit for both parties?
    Purchaser – wants to pay less for same value as yesterday
    Supplier – wants to get more payment for same effort/investment as yesterday
    Obvious = Only way to go is more value
    delivered with less effort!
  • 6. A good contract model should promote
    Purchaser to be a “good” one and allow
    to cancel when “good enough” is achieved
    changes and new ideas to be ordered
    Supplier to be a “good” one and assure that the Supplier get economical benefits if/when
    improvements or
    innovation or
    early cancellation happens
  • 7. Agile Contracting Manifesto?
    Maximize win-win over minimizing loss or riskPay for value or result over paying for cost or effortCustomer collaboration over contract negotiation Joint problems over “mine” and “your” problems
    That is, while there is value in the items on the right, we value the items on the left more
  • 8. Examples
    Fixed price TRs and bonus/fine if delivered outside defined “window”
    Fixed price Features based on joint size estimates S/M/L/XL
    …..
  • 9. Questions
    Typical waste in non-Agile contracts?
    “How much will it cost in total – I have a limited budget.”
    “When are you ready – when can I promise the marketing team to start sell?”
    “What will I get when the assignment is over?”
    .....
