Take your Lean-agile Procurement capability to the next level

The Mastering Lean-agile Procurement (Cert 2) Workshop will take your knowledge and capability in LAP to the next level. Only available to those who have completed the LAP Cert 1 course (what we call the ANZ LAP Alumni)  or those who can demonstrate experience with agile procurement, the course will be run over two half-days on 19th & 20th August. The course will be conducted over Zoom by Mirko, from his base in Switzerland.  Due to the interactive nature of the course participant numbers are strictly limited to a maximum of ten (10).  We therefore encourage you to secure your place quickly by registering today.

For those who completed the course physically last year, Mirko has successfully delivered LAP Cert 1 three times already in the last couple of months to ANZ, using Zoom and the Mural online collaboration app.

What makes this Workshop special:

  • Join a cohort of other Certified LAP Coaches and develop skills, exchange your learning even beyond the workshop

Our Workshop Style

We like to get you the maximum out of it and so adapt the agenda towards your current topics, challenges and questions. We believe in an interactive workshop style with less slides, where we spend aprox 1/3 of our time in theory and the rest in applicable exercises, stories, exchanging experiences, etc. Most important it’s always also a lot of FUN!
