OnDemand Webinar (94 minutes)

Drive the economic value of terms and conditions through relationships, commitments, priorities and expectations.Failing to capture and generate value from contracts is a lose-lose scenario - both customer and supplier/contractor should deem it a failure. Yet, when the contracting aspect is approached differently, a win-win scenario emerges. Both parties must realize that low value rates from contracts can usually be avoided. New approaches and mindsets must be introduced with both parties. This topic will be based on research, data and in the trenches experiences, synthesized into a coherent and compelling message for the audience to apply in their own organization. Value generation and high-yield contracting are at the leading edge of today's commercial practice. You will acquire practical insights into how they can move to the forefront.
