Many projects start before proper authorisation is granted, through the creation and signing of legally binding Contracts. "Contracts" often constitute no more than a Supplier's Terms and Conditions, which are designed to protect the Supplier, at the expense of the Customer. As a result there is often no clear, unambiguous statement of what is expected of each Party, what products the Project will deliver, nor any defined criteria of what will constitute proper delivery of such products. Customers and Suppliers are thereby exposed to the risk of costly litigation, as a result of a failure to deliver as expected by the other Party. When there is a failure to supply what is expected, the legal position of parties is unclear.

This seminar will develop your legal knowledge, reduce uncertainty and thereby reduce the risk of expensive litigation inherent in creating contractual relationships. This knowledge will allow you to work more closely with lawyers, minimise their workload and also reduce the time it usually takes to draw up contracts.

You will gain a practical introduction to contract law in the context of project management. You'll will understand what a properly drawn contract should contain and look like, what clauses should be included as a minimum, and how that differs from mere 'Terms and Conditions'. You will also learn to read and understand contractual terms and how to include relevant information by attaching schedules. You will be able to recognise and deal confidently with the risks and benefits of contracts normally associated with managing projects and products.

This course includes the following modules:
