Building an effective and transparent contract management system to support a project should be considered as a core value and a must. Utilizing a strict contract management process protects organizations from disputes and also provides administrative comfort. It also helps shield and protect organizations and can also be used as a tool to evaluate the project’s overall performance and profitability.  A question remains: “To what extent should the responsible parties comprehend contract conditions before any commitment is made?”

Topics to be covered:

  • Contract Scope and relationship
  • Change Management
  • Project Management vs Contract Management
  • Contract Management Issues
  • Causes of Contract Failures
