Agile Contracting by AGILENOMICS™ Launch

Chrysinou Consulting’s J. Margetis unveils the market-ready course on 7/5

On Friday, July 5th, 2019, at a restaurant in Ashburn, VA, the contents of the new Agile Contracting by AGILENOMICS™ course were submitted for peer review and feedback. An earlier version of the course material was already reviewed once before in early March, 2019 in Palm Beach County, FL. The feedback was quite positive, and Chrysinou Consulting, LLC has decided to proceed to market with this course.

“…THIS COURSE REALLY HITS HOMETHIS IS MY WORLD, THE DAILY REALITY I FACE…

(D.Q.)

The first marketing campaign occurred between August 5th – 9th during the Agile 2019 conference in Washington D.C where Chrysinou Consulting’s J. Margetis delivered a 3 minute lightning talk on paradox of the relationship between the Agile Manifesto and 3d party vendor contracts, as the two struggle to find a collaborative balance – there are many years of documented, adversarial case studies between the two.

As a quick reminder, the Agile Contracting Fundamentals course focuses on solving for the natural paradox that takes shape between the legacy need for a clear and stable contract between two parties, and the need for “welcoming changing requirements” in any Agile setting. The industry has made significant progress in transforming from the “safety” of “big up front” fixed requirements to the “bold” state of variable features in a product backlog. However, the structure of the majority of contracts that we still encounter in our consulting practice is clearly lagging behind. Historical incidents and long-term distrust between vendors and clients result in contracts that still seem to advocate “fixed” outcomes vs. allowing for “variability”. The problem is clear, and has existed in the industry for many years.

Our Agile Contracting Fundamentals course focuses on proven recommendations to overcome the root causes of distrust, such that it becomes possible to finally structure a contract that allows “variable scope” and bilateral commitment to an Agile mindset. There are also several other innovative angles introduced that are truly transformational in the Contracting space. Innovative topics such as how and when to apply remedies, J-curve considerations, and how to align accounting reconciliation cycles with an Agile cadence are also included in this course.
