When it comes to procurement in a Lean-Agile context, according to Mirko Kleiner, "It's not rocket science" – but it does deliver compelling business value. Kleiner wears many hats: a thought leader in Lean-Agile procurement, author, co-founder of Flowdays and the list goes on. Lean Agile Procurement, he says, has some simple tenants that any agilist would recognize:
- Bring everyone together for alignment from legal to procurement to the supplier and the business users to form a cross-functional team.- Accept uncertainty.- Empower the team.
The outcomes include a client with a better understanding of what it wants, less re-work or misunderstanding about requirements, and - get this - an average increase of 400% in time-to-market.
