Topics/Call fo Papers

While many contracting courses address risk, this webinar is focused upon value and how the commercial relationship contracting interface – between procurement/sourcing and sales – can maximize it for both parties. You will learn how to become effective at generating value for both sides and avoiding the pitfalls which many overlook. What is value? How can it be maximized? What threats exist which might ub-optimize value? What role do tendering documents, contract terms, scopes of work, service level agreements, key performance indicators, contracting strategies and relationship management plans have? These are just some of the easier questions we will address in this informative and practical session.
The key objectives include:
The structure of a value maximization strategy document and knowing what to cover
The core points to cover in certain contract documents, such as warranties, indemnities, acceptance, standards of performance and delivery
How to move value optimization from philosophical points, to conceptual elements and further on to specific details
Striving for complete, consistent and collaborative strategies
Why, how and when to not pursue certain value opportunities
Automation, tools and tactics which make value capture easier, cheaper and more reliable
This session will allow the participants to understand how value is defined, created and maximized across a commercial contract and relationship portfolio, and anticipate how specific process steps will impact the value yield. Plus, there will be discussion around the tools and talent needed, allowing participants to identify the appropriate commercial skills needed for maximizing value and understand the commercial tools used in the journey. The session will also cover some of the tactical points, such as how to develop the key tactical points in a world-class value optimization plan and then define and measure one’s success.

The ideal timing to pursue value
