Contract Management Online Training Course

Course Overview:

Simply put, Contract Management is ‘Forward Thinking’ and Bill Gates for one, would never be able to appreciate it enough! Call it seeing the right opportunity at the right time and then executing well on the concept.

Contract management is the process of managing contract creation, execution and analysis to maximise operational and financial performance at an organisation, all while reducing financial risk. Organizations encounter an ever-increasing amount of pressure to reduce costs and improve company performance.

Perhaps the best case in focus would be of the IBM PC that presents how Microsoft ended up with the contract for the operating system, which would eventually make Microsoft’s MS-DOS the standard and set the stage for Microsoft becoming the leading PC software company.

It is easy to overlook the importance of contract management because it seems to be a boring, mundane topic. Contracts, however, are the basis of most business relationships. If contracts are managed well, business relationship will flourish. If they are not, companies face financial loss, relationship harm, and damaged reputations.
