    Personally, I work in 2 week sprints. Client/Partner pays to budget the sprint and the rest of payment is given on delivery. If we like each other and things are going smooth, we continue on and draft up another 2 week sprint. This keeps us non-married in contract, and less risk for both parties. Has been working out well for me.

      I have a similar approach. Also work in 2 weeks cycle for a fixed price. At the beginning, I define what goes into these 2 weeks – together with the client, based on his requirements. What I'm able to deliver in this time is of course based on my experience. If the clients don't do their part, it's possible that I'm not able to deliver all the things, but I'm still getting paid. Because I also have blocked the time from my schedule to fully commit my time and focus to this project.
