  • Bill Levien thinks this is interesting:

Although the detail in a contract is often mandated by compliance requirements, organizational standards and legal imperatives, underpinning this detail is a lack of trust in the relationship between the vendor and the client. By putting extensive detail into a software development agreement, the client is seeking protection from the risk of insufficient outcomes (or non-delivery of outcomes), budget overruns and missed deadlines. The more that this risk is perceived by the client, the more the contract will endeavor to mitigate the risk through an abundance of clauses to account for every possible contingency.
