Agile Software Development Agreements: Navigating the Complex Contracting Issues
Evaluating Agile vs. Waterfall Development; Structuring Provisions on Pricing, Project Plan, Warranties and More
A live 90-minute CLE webinar with interactive Q&A
Wednesday, April 5, 2017 (in 6 days)
1:00pm-2:30pm EDT, 10:00am-11:30am PDT
This CLE webinar will provide guidance to corporate and technology counsel for evaluating the benefits and risks of agile software development and structuring key provisions in agile software development agreements. The panel will discuss current trends in the use of agile development methods, legal issues that arise with the arrangements, and strategies to avoid common contracting pitfalls.
Agile software development, an alternative to waterfall software development, has become a popular and preferred development methodology for many companies. Agile development allows software developers to collaborate with customers in establishing deliverables at smaller intervals throughout the development process rather than predicting the full scope, cost and deliverable deadlines at the beginning of the project and risking a failure to deliver as promised.
Attorneys who draft, negotiate or review agile software development agreements find them challenging because the flexible nature of agile development makes it difficult to anticipate, allocate and guard against potential risks. However, there are effective ways to structure contract terms that can help counsel manage risks.
Listen as our authoritative panel of technology and corporate attorneys explains best practices when adopting agile software development methodology. The panel will evaluate the pros and cons of agile software development, discuss key provisions that should be included in agile software agreements, and explain considerations for counsel to customers and developers during contract drafting to avoid legal pitfalls.
- What is agile software development? How is it different from traditional software development methodologies?
- Navigating contractual challenges with agile agreements
- Evaluating agile vs. waterfall software development agreements
The panel will review these and other key issues:
- What factors should technology and business counsel take into account when evaluating whether to use an agile or waterfall software development agreement?
- What key provisions should be included in agile software development agreements to most effectively manage risks?
- What are the most challenging issues with agile software development and what are some effective strategies for addressing them?
