Agile Sourcing Working Group

Registration is closed

The interest in and adoption of agile sourcing is accelerating as companies increasingly recognise the significant business benefits it delivers. However, not only does “agile sourcing” mean different things to different people, but there are no guiding principles as to what good agile sourcing actually looks like.

The GSA has set up its Agile Sourcing Working Group to address exactly this issue. The immediate focus of this Working Group will be:

To agree on the definition for agile sourcing to bring clarity on what it is and what it isn’t; where it starts and where it ends; and how it differs from agile procurement.

To develop guiding principles for agile sourcing to include:

  • what the characteristics of agile sourcing are
  • what behaviours are needed for successful agile sourcing
  • what involvement is required across all stakeholders
  • the need for alignment with good governance processes

To develop a maturity framework to assess readiness/competences that both buyers and providers can measure against

To measure and map the benefits of agile sourcing to better understand and better benchmark the benefits it delivers

If you would like to be involved in developing these new industry best practices then please do join our Agile Sourcing Working Group – open the buyers, providers and advisors. Our next meeting will take place virtually on the 15th November at 10:30- 11:30 am GMT.
