Agile Contracting and Execution (ACE)
ACE is a collection of concepts and practices for implementation of agile software development. ACE looks at system development from a customer perspective, focusing on creation of value and benefit management. ACE is suitable for both large and small initiatives, with and without a contract, both in private and public sectors, and systems developed within or outside projects.
The concepts and practices described in ACE are well proven in practice. ACE encapsulates and advocates practices from several million project hours with agile system development under contracts. It further provides specific guidelines for implementation and management of agile projects in combination with a contract. ACE documents how agile and lean software development can be combined with the best practices in project execution. Briefly said; ACE put "power" on frameworks like PRINCE2® and MSP®.
