Overview

In today’s business society, organisations have lost significant sums of funds due to the contractual terms and conditions, which have been created when purchasing equipment, services and goods.

The importance of understanding contractual agreements has considerably increased since most business processes are now governed through a contractual relationship. Delegates must also realise how to obtain the best agreement for your organisation.

The program has been designed to show delegates how contracts have been created, explain the main clauses that can appear within contracts today and advise on other potential alternative contracting strategies and structures.
