None of these contractual frameworks considers the new form of cooperation in agile projects optimally; neither do they define clear rules as to how to treat the obvious changing subject matter (scope).

Such a contract is not necessarily a new invention but is primarily the natural evolution of the traditional fixed-price contract.
