Contract management is an essential part of every business. It is a process of implementing protocols to ensure that suppliers deliver agreed outputs at minimum risk to the organisation with maximum returns.
There have been few well documented public examples of where contracts have failed to deliver to agreed standards, as such there is a growing importance for contract managers to be better equipped to manage contracts.
