Overview

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. This involves skills in negotiating and drafting the contract, as well as managing the same and negotiating issues and disputes that may arise.
 
The first course module 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 also consider techniques for third party dispute resolution. The second Module will cover the whole range of negotiations, reviewing the whole negotiation process and showing how a collaborative style to handling disputes or conflict maintains the win/win approach (which was set before any dispute arose!).
