Feb 7th Meeting Topic: Outcomes of Firm Fixed Contracts

At the meeting 7th February meeting, Mark Windholtz will present the possible outcomes when a software project is based on a Firm Fixed Contract.

A Firm Fixed contract sets the project scope, budget, and delivery date.   This seems like a good idea for the client of the project because it forces the software development team to make a commitment to delivering the project.   The reality is that projects based on the Firm Fixed contract, follow one of the paths that we will present in this talk.  

There are a predictable set of project outcomes.  Come to the meeting and see what can possibly happen.
