Session: Agility fuck-tors - what happens in a court

Presentation Slides

Agile is nice, I like it, everyone (almost) likes it. But what happens if we have a real problem during a project? If we can’t agree what a user story means, who makes what, who is responsible if all our data vanished. The „pure” agile contract is quite different from the „waterfall” one, at least in Polish legal system.

If you are a vendor, usually it’s not bad for you. If you a client you need some not-so-common construction inside the contract to help. Real life stories, real life problems.
