Define your problem
Albert Einstein is reported as saying “if I had 20 days to solve a problem, I would take 19 days to define it.”
19 days to gather the data, to define a common language, to understand the assumptions being made and prejudices, and to understand the resistance and motivators.
A day to solve it, and then time thereafter to implement it.
More on applying this insight to procurement activity
in a blog written for Future Purchasing.
