SUMMARY

Classic approaches for procurement (RfI  RfP  RfQ) are expensive, less efficient and focus just on the produkt or services. Agile organisations tend to form different and factors like soft-skills, collaboration, culture, etc are as important as hard-factors. In other words classic procurement isn't really compatible to solve a complex problem like sourcing. So, what's to solution?-Mirko Kleiner, Co-Founder of flowdays.net presents a new, exciting simple and radical approach for procurement.
