Dinner Topic: Agile Procurement – Not just for software anymore

Agile is one of the newest trends for the future of procurement and this course introduces the essentials of Agile Procurement.  In this new era of procurement companies need to be able to move quickly and be able to change direction, when required.  Gone are the days when the supplier knows more than you do.  Instead, using agile allows the procurement department to control the purchase from bid through performance.  It is not just for software anymore.  This session examines what it takes to be agile using real world examples.  Forms and resources are given to students to bring back to their organization.
