    2. Contracts - what does a lean contract look like.
    Below are some ideas around how to structure the relationship with a client when trying to work in a lean way:
    Agile contracts - fixed price - limited committed scope.
    Fixed price / fixed scope - how to deal with this.

    At a corporate level there are some key things that need to be achieved.
    Put the contracts around those core things rather than specifying the detail.

    Outcome based contracts.

    List the application of the high level features.

    Estimate based on actual cost of similar projects
    Break the project into smaller chunks (quarterly) with reviews at the delivery points
    Beyond Budgeting.
    Give them more options.
    Training for finance / legal / procurement - how to create agile friendly contracts.

    Lean Coffee[masked]

    Some of the topics discussed at the Lean Coffee on the 25/6 are:

    1. Do we have examples of other ways of visualising knowledge work aside from the standard Kanban board?

    This discussion split into to areas. For work in progress usually a Kanban board designed to match your workflow does a good job.

    The second area was regarding visualizing the backlog / ideas area.
    This could be done using :
    Story Mapping. - Depth and Breadth
    Value Tree Backlog

    Visualizing the backlog is not core lean - but done well could communicate remaining work effort to stakeholders.
