Workshop: Agile@Procurement


About Agile

Organisations today need an agile approach to catch up with increased market demands associated with time-to-market, innovation, complexity, etc.

Lean-agile procurement (LAP) fills this gap and what used to take MONTHS needs just DAYS NOW!

Lean-agile procurement is based on agile and lean principles which focus on the business value and the people involved. The aim is to create adaptive partner ecosystems, offering a competitive advantage.

Through LAP, lead time of sourcing a new partner is reduced to days, customer problems are solved first and risk is minimised.


About the Workshop

The structure of the workshop is agile, so that the focus can be adapted by the participants at any time. The speakers enrich the workshop with success stories and leadership experience from their practice. Furthermore, the workshop includes hands-on experiences and stimulates exchanges between the participants to challenge the theory and the examples with their experience.
