Agile Event - GOTO Night Zurich

GOTO Night "The RFP is dead: Or how do you evaluate a new agile partner today?”
with Mirko Kleiner

Nov. 17, 2016

Free of charge



GOTO Night TALK: “The RFP is dead: Or how do you evaluate a new agile partner today?”

Classic Evaluations (RfI > RfP > RfQ) are expensive, not efficient and focus to products and services only. In agile organizations other factors of the future partnership, such as soft-skills, collaboration, culture, etc. are at least as important. This is not covered yet in the classic approach. So what’s the solution?
Mirko Kleiner, Co-Founder of the Swiss Think Tank flowdays likes to present a new, exciting, radical approach for evaluations: 1 Page > 1 Day > 1 Evaluation

Currently the following goals are feasible:
- It’s as little as possible preparation time needed: We do everything together in one day only
- The most important information about the offer is available on 1 page: This makes it more easy to create offers and to compare multiple quotes
- Soft & hard skills’ are in focus too: As the quote will be worked out together, we learn how the potential partner act, think and feel.
- The Lean proposal canvas is already an agile contract: No translation step is necessary any more


Mirko works as an independent agile coach and interim manager. He has long been an avowed Agilist (Agile Evangelist), but also flexible if it necessairy to adopt to the given surrounding conditions. After over 13 years of professional experience in various positions in distributed organizations, large-scale projects and different cultures (India, Russia, Serbia, Romania, West-EU), he is a known expert in setting up and management of distributed organizations and solving their challenges.
He shall be responsible for a balanced increase of business values and optimization of the corporate culture and is always looking for a holistic and sustainable approach beyond organizational and disciplinary boundaries.
He is eager to learn by other disciplines, persons and methods. Such as trends like Omni- commerce, gamification and collaborative consumption and their impact on organizations.
