Common Pitfalls in Commercial Contracting

Start time: 12.30pm AEST. Learn about the most common pitfalls encountered in a typical contracting process to better identify risks and manage your contracts more effectively.

An Engineering Education Australia webinar:

Contracts are core business assets that play a key role in the successful delivery of engineering projects. Underperforming contracts cost money and interrupt the smooth running of an organisation’s contracts and its supply chain. 

The founder and CEO of World Commerce and Contracting (formerly the International Association for Contract and Commercial Management, “IACCM”) has stated that “organisations which do not manage their contracts effectively will be at a tremendous competitive disadvantage”. 

This webinar will highlight and analyse the most common pitfalls encountered in a typical contracting process, taking into consideration the results of the recent World Commerce and Contracting pitfalls survey.

Pitfalls explored span from the planning stage through to implementation and post-award processes to help an organisation prevent contract leakage that could cost time and budget.

You will learn how to better identify risks facing your contracts, helping your organisation to manage their contracts more effectively and achieve their objectives.
