Summary

Maximise your contribution to complex engineering contracts

Providing engineers with the skills, knowledge and competencies required to be an effective member of (or to support) the procurement team. 
This one-day course will help you secure vital resources including equipment, materials and services – thereby delivering value for the organisation from both local and global supply markets.

To ensure that the learning is embedded into the fabric of your organisation, the course uses engineering context-based case studies and activities. This is a participative and delegate-centred workshop with emphasis on the practical application of the tools, techniques and templates required to be successful. You’ll also leave with a clear action plan to take back into the workplace.

Who should attend?

Engineers and non-engineers at all levels, especially those who might negotiate on contracts or who want to up-skill to gain a competitive edge.

How will I benefit?

After the course you will be able to:

• Apply the fundamentals of contract law and intellectual property law to maximise your contribution to the process.

• Understand model forms of contract and methods of drafting a contract.

• Confidently agree, negotiate or dispute your own contracts.
