The Role and Responsibilities of the Contracts Manager
This interactive programme will examine the contract after it has been signed and has to be implemented as written and will focus on giving you the necessary knowledge, tools and processes to be able to read and review contracts. It will also give you the understanding and skills to communicate to others, internally and externally, the ‘as sold’ contract meaning to ensure that all promises are completed and that all parties remain within the protection of the legal agreement and are aware of the possible risks, liabilities and consequences if promises are broken.
You will learn how to apply a logical, systematic and comprehensive approach to reading, managing and implementing a contract so that you are confident and fully appreciate what is required of you, your team and the other contracting party(ies) to satisfy the legal obligations laid out in the contract. You will also be provided with a clear understanding of all the legal obligations and liabilities included within contract terms and conditions and gain valuable knowledge of best practice for monitoring and assessing the progress of contracts to ensure that they are actioned successfully and efficiently to provide the
best outcome possible for your organisation.
Drawing on the expert trainer’s real-life experiences and using many workshop-style exercises and examples, the topics will be brought to life to help embed learning. There will also be ample opportunity to network with others in similar roles across different organisations.
Whether your contracts are local, national or global this programme will:
- Boost your knowledge to understand and manage the legal obligations and requirements set out in the contract
- Inject you and your project team with the energy to fulfil your obligations and ensure an effective working relationship with stakeholders
- Anticipate where potential risks may arise and proactively manage them to minimise, or neutralise, their impact on the project
- Deliver a toolkit of best practice techniques to use successfully on your next project
Why You Should Attend
As a contracts manager you have the important and, sometimes, onerous responsibility of administering your organisation’s contracts in the most efficient and effective way. This practical course provides an in-depth look at the extensive role and responsibilities of the contracts manager and will give you a comprehensive understanding of agreements and their terms.
To ensure the smooth execution of a contract and enable proactive management of potential risks, it is vital to have clarity between the parties of the promises made and the liability allocation. You need to fully understand the contract management framework and best practice to reduce risks in contract delivery, and successfully manage supplier relationships.
This seminar will help you to:
- Understand the structure of a legal contract
- Be confident that you are operating under a legally binding contract
- Appreciate fully what has been agreed between the contracting parties and what the legal obligations and responsibilities of each are
- Recognise the allocation of risk between the contracting parties
- Realise what the consequences will be if either party does not comply with the contract and fails to satisfy their legal obligations
- Grasp the importance of being proactive in establishing a project plan, monitoring work, driving progress and managing risk
- Value the benefits of undertaking a recap at the end of a contract’s life so as not to repeat mistakes made and to gain from the learning curve of ‘what went well’
- Master new skills through the use of practical hands-on exercises and cases with feedback from the expert trainer
Practical exercises, facilitation and discussion sessions are used throughout the course to ensure delegates have a clear appreciation of the added value gained from being proactive in the planning and management of a contract. Attendees will be shown how to anticipate problems and resolve them before they become critical and potentially very costly, rather than managing the project in a reactionary manner.
Who Should Attend?

- Contracts managers
- Project managers
- Commercial managers
