Course Introduction

The contract management training course focuses on the monitoring and administrating the contract. The contract is a binding agreement which comprises expectations of two or more parties. It is necessary to scrutinise the contract very closely in order to increase the benefits and diminishes the risks. Contract management helps to ensure that the involved parties are fulfilling their promises and strictly following the conditions. During the training program, the delegates will learn the creation, execution, analysis for maximising the financial and operational performance and risk management effectively. They will also gain an understanding of important tactics and skills to manage the contract successfully.
