Contract management is a key management skill, yet it is underplayed in most organizations, which usually default to project management skills as a proxy for contract management skills. Whilst project management skills are equally essential, they are not the same thing. Contract Management looks at the wider contract management picture from an industrial-commercial perspective, and helps set-out typical structures and processes that assist the contract management task. The author uses diagramatic representations to depict complex ideas.
Contract Management includes "learning points" in each chapter, looking at handling problems, procedural changes and enhancing commercial performance.
Good selling and good procurement requires the continued application of process discipline - not only before but also after the contract is signed. This book provides structured, straight-forward guidance about how to get those deals you have signed delivered and completed in line with expectations.
