Abstract

Agile software development methods are harder to adopt by third-party software developers than by in-house software development teams, since traditional contractual frameworks can easily lead to unfair risk distributions between client and supplier when applied to agile projects. We therefore present a pricing model for agile software projects that distributes risks evenly between the partners, and encourages efficient, high-quality contributions on both sides.
