Acknowledgements and further research

Many of the fundamental concepts of agile do not sit easily with the way that contracts between a customer and a supplier are typically structured. Agile is a collaboration where a customer and a supplier work together and share risk. A contract is usually an adversarial mechanism which describes ‘legal remedies’ for when things go wrong. Any project using PRINCE2 Agile needs to choose between using existing practices or using a different underlying structure that is more amenable to working in an agile way.
