Waterfall vs Agile Contracts
|Fixed scope, time and cost are estimated||Flexible scope, fixed time and cost|
|Requirements and end product are clearly defined||Requirements and product evolve with time|
|Delivery at the end||Continuous delivery throughout the project|
|Changes are tightly controlled||Changes are welcome even late|
|Strictly follow the contract||Collaborative approach|
