    Overview

    Technology moves quickly and changes constantly—but the traditional procurement process moves slowly and is bound by a rigid structure. This mismatch leads to a myriad of challenges in IT procurement: cost overruns, delays, low adoption, unhappy end users, and lack of innovation.  To combat this, many teams are turning to agile procurement, which places greater emphasis on iteration and collaboration throughout the process.  In this webinar, we’ll give a quick primer on agile procurement and take a look at some concrete ways that public organizations can become more agile in their procurement process, without breaking any rules.
