Agile and Fixed Price Contract - Conflict - Cannot understand

Tue Mar 06, 2018 2:25 pm


Although I have been studying agile, I am clueless on how it will work and benefit for Fixed contract.
I worked for a consultancy company and we do CRM - ERP projects for many clients.
One of the project started with defining scope, SOW, and price. After completing discovery session, we usually create a detail document and ask client to sign and after that we build / configure the system , do a demo, UAT, data migration and go live.

Now in above scenario it is easy to have change request, but one of our client asking for Agile approach using JIRA. Delivery in Sprint in cycles, training on deliverables and rolling out which will need more resources, time and efforts - mismatching with effort estimation

how do I do above project in agile way .. what are project milestones in agile way can somebody elaborate
