Testing the theory that if you can’t measure it, you can’t (contract) manage it

Contracts Administration

 

Delegates attending EuroMaTech’s tried and trusted training programme, “Contract Administration: From Award to Completion” have this week been looking at many aspects of the contract management and administration function – including using Key Performance Indicators, Targets and Measurement.

The training course has been running for a week in Dubai and has been attended by participants from across the GCC region.

“This programme reflects that management and administration is about people, process and good practice”, commented Bill Blakemore, the senior consultant and lawyer who is conducting the training.  “I deliver a portfolio of contract management courses, and what I like about this one, is that it is suitable for experienced practitioners, as well as those starting out in the business of contract management and administration”.

“This week the delegates have backgrounds in construction, petroleum and government.  That means a breadth of experience that enriches the conversation and participation.  It also means that quite a lot of the course material is new information for these participants.”.

“I really enjoy the way my delegates get stuck into the many practical exercises. They may not have created mind maps or Ishikawa diagrams before, or taken part in negotiation exercises playing different roles from their actual jobs; but that doesn’t mean they don’t have a go on this course. Yet again it demonstrates to me the value of a training programme that encourages active participation.  These delegates will remember what we are doing, and will have a good chance of being able to apply what they learn when they’re back in the office.”

Among the topics covered this week are:
  • How to use international standard contract models
  • Managing contractor risks
  • Measuring supplier performance with KPIs and targets
  • Identifying the traps in the other side’s contract terms
  • Managing changes to the scope of work
  • Preparing for contract claims

How to resolve disputes through negotiation, mediation and other methods
