Scrum Agile Project Management

Agile Budgeting and Contracting

How do agile projects accurately forecast their budget when they are typically just a bunch of hippies coding without requirements or documentation?

We’ll cover these topics with interactive examples and also identify where we think the industry needs to go with budgeting on agile projects.
