All agile development begins with the sales process. Internally, adopting agile approaches require the support of top management and project managers. External clients have to be sold on the agile approach and convinced to sign a contract that allow for agile development. Sales teams have to be able to convince external clients that the agile approach is the best for their project.

Paul Klipp has been selling the agile process internally and to outside clients since 2004 with considerable success. In this presentation, he'll discuss how to sell the benefits of agile development to internal stakeholders and to outside clients and will provide an overview of different approaches to agile contracts.

  • For the feature releases photo, try searching for “software demo” because a feature release looks like one person (the client) looking at a feature and giving feedback to the development team.







  • I’ll talk about some software horror stories, to illustrate how bad most software is.

    It’s of a French rocket costing half a billion dollars that explodes due to a software bug.

  • Your prospect is overwhelmed with options and details. Give them less to think about and they will trust you more. Give them one, just one, good reason to choose your service.

  • Tell your prospects the ten best things about your service, and he won't remember any of them.

    and he'll remember it and assume that there are more good things besides.

  • Eliminate cliches from your message. Your prospects don't even register them and they undermine your message. Tell the straight truth without embellishment, and you'll be remembered.
  • Be grateful for the opportunity and express your gratitude in everything you do. It's not over when you deliver the product, either. The client still has no assurances that what you delivered is dependable or a better value than the service he didn't choose would have been. In extending his faith to your software, he's doing you another huge favor.
