Correct Answer: General service for the initial phase with fixed-price contracts for successive phases; cost-reimbursable/time and materials; not-to-exceed with fixed-fee
Explanation:Fixed-price contracts, although typical of traditional projects where scope is defined ahead of time, are not well suited for agile. When scope is fixed it can deter
a team from exploring out-of-scope solutions that may add value to the product.
Contracts suited for agile include: general service for the initial phase with fixedprice
contracts for successive phases; cost-reimbursable/ time and materials; not-toexceed
with fixed-fee; and a combination with incentives. [Agile Software
