The Essentials of Contracting

Overview:

The Course

Every day significant monies are made and lost by organizations as a result of the contractual terms and conditions governing contracts for the purchase of goods, equipment, and services. Since all business activities are governed by contractual relationships, it is increasingly important for all those dealing with outside organizations to have an understanding of how to obtain the best possible agreement for their organization.

The course will look at how contracts are created, and some of the main clauses that appear in contracts, together with a number of alternative contracting strategies and structures. The course will then consider methods to be used in negotiating contracts, including techniques relating to negotiating on variations and claims. The course will deal with day to day commercial issues arising from business agreements written in the English language, but will use techniques which have wide application to many types of contract in many countries.

The Goals

  • Provide an understanding of how contracts are formed
  • Give in depth analysis of issues behind major contract clauses
  • Improve appreciation of legal issues in contracts
  • Enhance understanding of different contracting strategies and structures
  • Develop new skills in negotiation of contracts and disputes
  • Increase understanding as to how and why disputes arise
  • Learn how to transfer risk through different contract types
  • Explain how to use contract provisions to reduce the risk of disputes

The Process

Training will involve a high level of interaction and delegate participation. The intention is that the trainer will explain issues, using real examples, but will then involve the delegates in discussion, using the information provided. There will also be sessions on negotiating, where delegates will work as teams to seek to agree disputes in realistic scenarios.

Delegates are encouraged to bring real problem examples with them, for discussion on a confidential basis, and to share their experience of particular issues in their company or industry.

The Benefits

  • Delegates will be introduced to some of the latest international practices in contracting strategy and dispute resolution, and shown how to build such practices into their contract documents
  • Professionals should have more confidence in discussing issues with lawyers or with the other parties to contracts
  • A better understanding of legal and practical issues will allow the more effective management of external legal and other resources
  • Non-lawyers will find it easier to instruct and work with specialist lawyer colleagues, improving the performance of both parties
  • Dispute avoidance skills will be enhanced, as will the ability to manage such disputes as do arise in an effective manner

The Results

  • Expanding the expertise of personnel involved in developing contractual strategies, negotiating contracts and claims
  • Improve supplier performance in providing fair and reasonable prices for an on-time high quality scope
  • Total cost of Ownership should be reduced
