Synopsis

Do you want to learn the basics of contract law? Apart from being responsible for managing delivery of a project, do you read or deal with contracts in your role as a Project Manager? Are you in doubt of the exact meaning of some of the words in the contracts? Are you worried about your understanding of a binding contract, and the extent of your liability under a contract? Today, knowledge is power and what can be more powerful than understanding the law of contracts!
 
After the completion of this course, students are recommended to attend the day 2 training on Contract Law II.

 
The 2 days training will focus on understanding contractual agreements as well as equip the participants with skills to avoid the traps and pitfalls of misleading clauses that can lead to conflict and litigation. Participants will also discover how to draft contracts to minimise risk and to negotiate the right clause for your case. The course offers a practical introduction to contract law in the context of project management.
 
Course Objectives
 
The dangers of “small prints” are well known to all project managers, but the understanding of the precise legal ramifications of a contract can make the difference between success and failure. This course is to teach you what to look for in a contract in order for you to make an informed decision, taking all potential risks and benefits into account. The understanding gained from this course will reduce the chances of contract disputes occurring, though it is impossible to account for other parties involved.
