Agile outsourcing

◼️
Overview

The agile outsourcing project simplifies how organizations source/procure mid to large service packages. The major novelty is the collaborative solution development in iterative steps with the suppliers. This approach reduces unnecessary work in the form of long requirements and statement of work documents and includes the expertise and experience of the supplier instead. The agile outsourcing project builds on different ways of working with suppliers and is independent of the jurisdiction or other legal requirements.
