Agile procurement cost reduction

Procurement is a critical function to improve your bottom-line. Usually, 3% of the procurement workforce is managing the external spend which represents 50-80% of total cost.

Procurement waves are a series of 12-weeks sprints, each of them focusing a set of categories delivering 3 main benefits:
