Revenues and Agile Procurement

  • 3386 Accesses

Abstract

The thesis of this volume is that procurement is not a support function but one of the main contributors to an organization’s margins. Under this vision, this chapter analyzes how agile procurement can contribute to the revenues of the organization. It devotes particular attention to defining the critical success factors of a project for agile procurement. The last part of the chapter presents a model for the implementation of e-procurement. Such a project requires special attention to defining a business case, taking care of relationships with numerous stakeholders, and managing the project in the proper way.
