RFPs Are Killing Businesses

How to Pivot to Agile Sourcing

Don’t let RFPs slow down your business.

RFPs are largely ineffective when you’re looking to procure services that may change over time, including transformation services.

Agile sourcing is an alternative approach to procuring products and services and revolves around a process that embraces fast testing, learning and re-iterating.

Why are RFPs an outdated way to procure services? Because they:

  • Are focused on a fixed and static outcome
  • Remove all creativity and collaboration between you and the provider
