Time and Materials
The simplest and usually most cost effective method for delivering projects because our consultants bill on the time they spend delivering the services not on the delivery of the outcomes.
In most time and material engagements the ownership of the deliverable sits with the client. The client manages the team, the outcomes and the project plan. Our consultants bill based on the time they work.
Time and materials based engagement allow for flexibility as the scope of the project can change and evolve. The risk for this evolution of scope and requirements, and any subsequent increase in cost, lies with the client.
Time and materials based engagements work well for client led, Agile projects where minimising cost and maintaining control is a key focus.
Capped Time & Materials
Capped time and materials brings the best of both worlds. We run sprints, manage teams and workloads and deliver the project outcomes. However, as we bill for time spent we are able to deliver truly Agile projects as requirements evolution and discovery of value adding functionality is encouraged.
Capped time and materials engagements can be billed daily, weekly or by sprint and are capped by the clients budget.
Capped time and material engagements don't need to build as much risk into the price as fixed price which means that capped time and materials engagements are ideal for clients who want a vendor who will deliver the project and be accountable for the end result whilst also allowing for flexibility and value adding through the project all whilst keeping costs as low as possible.
In a fixed price engagement a set price is quoted for a specific piece of work. The client pays on delivery of agreed outcomes rather than on time spent to deliver them.
Fixed price based projects require us to build risk into the price, which means that we need to allow for unforeseen circumstances and reasonable amounts of scope change. This means that although fixed price give certainty on the end price, the price will be higher than time and materials as risk is built in.
Fixed price projects are run by us. We manage the project team, we set sprints, we lead the project and manage workload. Fixed proce projects don’t allow for much scope creep or evolution of requirements so are not suited to true Agile based projects however they do provide certainty and risk sits with us, the service provider.
