Decrease Risks and Maximize the Value of Your High-Value, Strategic Supplier Relationships with This Program!

I bet you did not realize that you are doing the work legal teams did a generation ago. And, with a fraction of the training, the average lawyer gets. No wonder you feel exasperated and exhausted.

If you negotiate and manage performance- and outcome-based contracts for a living, you need an enhanced skill set. Unfortunately, your company does not have the resources to train you, and most negotiation skills training programs are not keeping pace with the increase in contract complexity. Many negotiation skills programs are too generic and out of touch with what it takes to negotiate and manage complicated terms and conditions, pricing models, and risk scenarios. Until now . . .

The Contract Professional’s Playbook eLearning Program is a web-based, self-paced “How do I” learning program 

You will learn tips and tricks from professionals with more than 25+ years of complex contracting to quickly prepare for and address scenarios common to performance- and outcome-based contracting. The Contract Professional’s Playbook and eLearning Program focuses on the entire contract life-cycle from planning to contract signing and then to management.

You can decrease risk and maximize value in three ways.

“I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed your class yesterday. I definitely had some “Aha!” moments and will take those learnings with me going forward. Also, when you showed us the New Yorker slide with the dogs saying, “It’s not enough that we succeed. Cats must also fail.” I thought it was refreshing hearing that since there are a lot of people out there actually that have that mentality. I always say to myself, “Other’s success isn’t my failure”.”

“This coaching session has been stellar! I’ve wanted someone to walk me through the arguments the supplier is making (to some terms in the contract) so I could give them a reasoned response to support our terms. Thank you.”
