Staying competitive was never as difficult as today.

You need to change how you source services and products to keep up.

After this workshop, you will...

  • leverage hands-on agile techniques for more effective procurement
  • Make your organisation more competitive through significantly improved time-to-market with similar or better quality
  • be a Certified Lean-Agile Procurement (LAP) specialist (Credential 1), with a one-year membership in the LAP community

Heart of the workshop: The lean Procurement Canvas

What you will take away from this workshop


What today's purchasers and providers have to improve

Together, we discuss current developments in the market and your own organization's partner ecosystem to assess advantages and disadvantages of common procurement. 

Which improved solutions does the tech landscape offer today? 

Take a tour of modern procurement's status quo & see the industry trends driving the need for a new approach in sourcing services & products. 


How different departments make use of agile principles for better procurement

Learn how Agile made Tesla, Google, ING-DIBA and many others more successful and learn how procurement & sales strategies can profit from that. 

How agile principles help you procure & sell the right things

Learn how the LAP Approach enables you to focus on the important services and products to procure/sell to improve time-to-market significantly with similar or better quality than today.

Use the lean Procurement Canvas for your own business

Together, we fill in the LAP Canvas with the help of a real-world scenario. Then, you can apply it for your own cases.


Basic knowledge in procurement, sales and agile are an advantage. The workshop is designed for an interdisciplinary audience of decision-makers, purchasers, sales, strategic buyers, management, innovation, business, delivery, and more.

My little known fact is I'm a hobby barista. What's yours?

My guiding principles in life are "BE the change you WISH to see in the world" & "WHAT IF..?". Early in my life, I came across with different cultures (India, Russia, etc.) which was the best thing that could have happened to me and made me a better person and entrepreneur. 

I'm the thought Leader in Lean-Agile Procurement, CIPS Award Winner 2018, int. Speaker, Author, President of LAP Alliance, co-founder flowdays, Agile Enterprise Coach, Certified [email protected] Trainer

I used to be a manager, co-developing youngculture to an intern. software sourcing provider with 200+ employees in 6 countries. During scaling agile in 2006 we made all mistakes you could imagine. Overcoming these challenges we increased productivity by +200% and customer-& employee satisfaction. As a former leader of big eCommerce programs I also know the challenges of agile teams, scrum masters, product owners and stakeholders at first hands.

Today in everything I do I'm looking for an integral, co-creative approach to increase business value significantly +100%. As an Agile Enterprise Coach, I enjoy the collaboration with persons from all levels, industries and company sizes. I prefer starting on the C-level, as this has the biggest sustainable business impact. Allow me to question your STATUS QUO, or we‘ll BOTH be wasting our time! 

I am a serial entrepreneur having created WAIoBLUE, flowdays and LAP Alliance. As a certified trainer I give master classes in Lean-Agile Procurement and Scrum at Scale.

I have been named in "The procurement magazine", received the CIPS Awards 2018 and a speaker on int. agile & procurement conferences in NYC, Moscow, London, Berlin, Zurich, ..

I love to lecture at the EIPM, support the Business Agility Institute NY & advise the CIPS Switzerland Committee.

I am currently working on topics like: De-Scaled Business Agility, Adaptive Partner Ecosystem & the question "What if we create our own money?"
