ATE - Innovation & Contracting: don't let your contracts stifle value
This one hour webinar is designed to review the contracting process and decisive moments when decisions and actions frustrate innovation. How do we make its importance clear to suppliers? How do suppliers illustrate their capabilities? What selection criteria are used and what opportunities might they lose? What contract terms and structure then undermine the right motivations and conversations for innovation? Who manages the contract relationship and what conversations does this enable? Are we designing for innovation or for other values?
Our Expert will discuss 3 levels:
1) Is best practice to specifically include, enable and incent innovation as part of the contract (selection, negotiation, terms and management): or
2) Is innovation something that gets disabled by the wrong sort of contract / terms: or
3) Is innovation completely independent of the contract - it just happens or doesn't happen no matter what contract terms or procedures we have in place?
