Week 37 —Close to the Finish Line

  • The balance between being prescriptive and being generous in the statement of work is a fine line. Despite being excited about the work done to date, I would be lieing if I didn’t say certain parts of the process have caused me pain and concern. So where is the fine line between being prescriptive in what I want vs. leaving enough room for creativity. What if someone delivers what I need but not in the way I asked for it? Someday, I want to sit down with a procurement expert and unpack all of this. From the point of view of someone on the outside looking in, it seems absurd. In some ways, it seems the procurement system punishes creativity in favour of rigid adherence to the statement of work. However, I feel like I must be missing something as a non procurement person.
