[scrumdevelopment] SCRUM with Fixed Price Contracts
- Is it possible to run SCRUM with fixed price contracts especially custom projects? For instance, lets say you need to make a program to communicate between two satellites. And client is big company - say NASA. They would only entertain fixed price estimates but are happy to run the project with SCRUM. Now in order to give a good estimate, I need all requirements defined to sufficient level of detail - along with complexity/ third party components price/ resource chart etc. That goes against Big Design Up Front [or is it different?] of Agile/ SCRUM? Without this, I cant estimate amount of work using any method.If I leave things to chance at a later stage then I might keep discovering the devil in detail far too late, far too often [every sprint] and my estimate is going to shot way over.How can this be handled?ThanksVicki
Sneak preview the all-new Yahoo.com. It's not radically different. Just radically better.

How accurate are the estimates pulled from the database? What happens
when they're wrong?
Who decides that the developer has met the analysts spec?
