(slightly O/T) Agile dev. contract form for clients?

Apologies for cross-posting.

We’ve been asked to do a job for a client who wants to embrace agile
development methodologies. Hurrah!

However, our standard contract was written for the 1980s. It is full
of phrases like “agreed specification” and “change request procedure”
and so on.

I was wondering, how do other people get around this in contract
forms with their clients? I was thinking of just reverting to a
standard consultancy contract, but not sure if that will cover all
our bases.

Any ideas from wiser owls here?

Hi Paul

I know the DSDM people have written interesting stuff about how agility
affects contracts and the procurement process, so I had a quick look via
Google and found this:

You have to register to download their sample contract - I haven’t done
that, so I haven’t seen it - they are good people and signatories to the
Agile Manifesto, so I hope it will be of use to you.

FYI: I just tried this link and you have to be a paying member to get
access to the file. The free registration isn’t adequate.

Oh. Sorry to lead you up that garden path!
