3 providers, 2 days and 1 customer with the goal to choose one provider at the end – sounds unlikely? But it works perfectly!

1stQuad was invited by the CKW (Centralschweizerische Kraftwerke) to this special event to show what 1stQuad and Wizdom can do. Without knowing what to expect, three different suppliers met a perfectly prepared customer on the first day and completed a densely packed program on site – specified by the Lean Agile Procurement methodology (https://www.lean-agile-procurement.com).

A whole stack of already prioritized user stories had to be implemented in the shortest possible time. At the same time, detailed agreements were made on IT architecture, legal & contractual issues and the cooperation model. Since all responsible persons (and even all providers) were in one room, the whole process was extremely efficient and straightforward.

After two intensive and enormously productive days we are unbelievably proud that we could convince the CKW of us and Wizdom and are very much looking forward to an exciting project with a great customer!
