In this session from Agile On The Beach 2017, Jowanna Conboye and Tom Moore explore how you properly reflect agile delivery when the law has clung to the waterfall method for so long?
As traditional terms and conditions are no longer fit for an agile world Jowanna and Tom look at the issues faced by agile businesses in their legal contracts with customers, including tips to prevent disputes with customers and how you can make sure your terms and conditions work best for your business.
