If you could only teach one thing about Lean Agile Procurement, what would it be?


Mastering Lean Agile Procurement: The Power of the Canvas

In the realm of Lean Agile Procurement, one tool stands out as a beacon for transformation and efficiency: the Canvas. Its effective utilization is not just an advantage; it’s a game-changer. Let’s embark on a journey to unlock the full potential of this pivotal tool, ensuring you’re not just participating in the process but leading the charge towards innovation and success. 🌟

The Canvas: Your Blueprint for Success

Understanding and leveraging the Canvas in Lean Agile Procurement is akin to holding the key to a treasure chest. However, the true magic lies not in possessing the Canvas but in mastering its use.

Why Training is Crucial

While the Canvas is readily available for download, mere possession isn’t enough. The difference between having a map and navigating the terrain lies in skilled guidance. Training illuminates the path, transforming a complex tool into an intuitive guide for your procurement journey.

  • Guided Understanding: Training offers a deep dive into the nuances of the Canvas, enabling you to navigate complex procurement landscapes with confidence.
  • Big Room Evaluation Mastery: Learn how to orchestrate effective big room evaluations, ensuring all stakeholders are aligned and empowered.

Preparing for Success: The Lead-Up to the Big Room Evaluation

The setup for the big room evaluation is critical. It’s about ensuring the right people are at the table (or just a phone call away), armed with a clear intent and understanding of the negotiation’s dynamics.

  • Empowerment and Accessibility: Make sure decision-makers are present or easily reachable to facilitate swift, informed decisions.
  • Clarity of Purpose: Know your objectives and your limits. What are you aiming to achieve, and what are your deal-breakers?

Navigating the Complexities of Procurement

Lean Agile Procurement thrives on the ability to adapt and evolve. The big room evaluation is a dynamic environment where needs and solutions can shift in real-time.

  • Engagement Selling and Procurement: Recognize when to push forward and when to step back. Understanding the balance between value and cost is crucial.
  • Real-Time Collaboration: The Canvas facilitates a collaborative environment where offers can be compared and contrasted on the fly, fostering innovative partnerships and strategies.

The Strategic Advantage of the Canvas

The Canvas is not just a tool; it’s a strategic advantage. It enables:

  • Quick, Collaborative Decision-Making: Assess options in real-time, ensuring agility in your procurement process.
  • Innovative Partnership Formation: Discover opportunities for split bids and collaborative ventures that might not have been apparent outside the structured environment the Canvas provides.
  • Resilient Planning for Delivery: Focus on actionable steps for implementation, ensuring that the procurement process is just the beginning of a successful journey.
