There is a fair bit of interest in this topic, since Liam Maxwell's "Better for Less" barnstormer, which attacked the state of UK IT Procurement and the dominance of the market by a handful of large System Integrators. So in response to a public request from LIam at his talk at EHI Live 2012, I got together with a group of people who have experience in both procurment and hackdays to put together a paper which proposes the use of hackdays in pre and post procurement phases of a project.

The result is this: http://www.scribd.com/doc/114734608/Hackdays-in-Procurement

I do hope that it is well received by the procurement profession, as it is vital to the UK economy that they start listening and changing the way they do business.
