Because of the increasing market demand we have to radically improve time-to-market - DAYS/WEEKS from idea to contract will become the new NORMAL! - As Pete Behrens - Board member ScrumAlliance nailed it: We offer with "Lean-Agile Procurement a new approach, that reduces and distributes risk through incremental and value-added funding for improved business outcomes."-This offers new possibilities to agile teams/organizations and procurement/sales functions to keep up or even stay relevant for the business!
