Lean Agile Procurement Training
The LAP1 training programme and its IP content is centred around the work of Mirko Kleiner in Zurich, Switzerland, and the LAP Alliance co-operative based in Europe and developed since 2015.
Mirko’s work focused on developing the principals of the AGILE business philosophy applied into a procurement context and fused with the strategic procurement process.
This training is retailed successfully by PASA AGILE as the LAP Alliance partner in Australia and New Zealand and has been successfully run more than ten times in ANZ since 2018 both ONLINE and in physical training workshops in Auckland, Sydney and Melbourne.
These public training events are scheduled each calendar year in advance and currently run ONLINE given pandemic restrictions. They are set to run live again when travel restrictions allow. Individual or group places are available on these public courses. Private courses for individual organisations are also available and timing can be flexible.
Over 150 alumini from these courses meet online every 6-8 weeks in free two-hour digital meet-ups arranged on ZOOM by PASA AGILE for follow-up Agile learning, case studies, discussion, and networking.
The LAP2 training course is currently in the final stages of development and should be available early in 2022.
The work by Mirko and the LAP Alliance is also directly applied by the PASA AGILE Team to meet client’s needs through training, coaching and consulting work.
The PASA AGILE Team can work remotely or on-site to coach client’s through an Agile project, or take a more hands-on consulting role if required. Initially, client’s often commission a short briefing or morning seminar on the Agile Procurement approach to educate, inform and explain to their procurement team or their stakeholders. PASA AGILE frequently fulfil such engagements:
