Start using Agile Contracts (Save your Nickle & Diming for Gumball Machines)

Published by Jason Assir on

At OpEx Digital Consulting LLC, we are a different kind of digital transformation consultancy. Like many, we design and implement software to your specifications. We also have experience in developing revenue-generating software via scrum. However, our commitment to agile development extends beyond our developers or the scrum teams we manage. Because agile is fundamental to how we go to market, we backstop all of our software development work with an agile contract where change requests are free.

Free?

Yep, that’s right, no more nickel and diming over scope of work. Change requests are free. Why?

Change requests are free because software development is not done in a vacuum from the rest of your business.

They’re free because if you are doing agile correctly, requirements will change. Priorities will change. Both will definitely change after successive development sprints.

Our experience shows us that the pareto principle applies to software development; that is, 80% of software value comes from 20% of the software features.

This means that the clear majority of product features either should be eliminated or replaced with ones of greater value after work has begun. We’ve designed our contracts with this in mind. Companies that try to be agile from within the confines of a traditional contract, often limit the potential of the final product. Inevitably, discovery of new features results in painful change request negotiations. This back-and-forth is a waste of time. It also gets in the way of creating exceptional client solutions. 

In the end, when you work with us, we will not just help you build a product. We’ll give you a means to continue developing products on your own and change the way you work with software vendors in the future.
