The Future of Contracting: Removing the Barriers to Successful Trading Relationships
What will contracting in 2020 look like? On behalf of IACCM, Roy Anderson has been interviewing leaders across a number of industries, a group that represents buy-side, sell-side and legal perspectives, to get their insights into what they think will happen. The study’s aim is to generate a visionary outlook from thought-leading executives, offering a platform for strategic planning and change programs. A consolidated report will be supplemented by a series of workshops and discussion forums, including an initial Executive Workshop at the IACCM Global Conference October.

As global complexity grows, and market volatility increases, traditional contracts and commercial practices must adapt. Today, there is increasing evidence that they represent a barrier to change and innovation.

During this call, participants will gain insights around the primary role, impact and capability of the contract and contracting process in the year 2020, and who will be responsible for its management. How will the contracting process create the most value for the enterprise in 2020? Tune in to find out, register now.

The implications to the way contracts are formed, our approach to risk, and the role of key stakeholders in the contracting process are potentially profound.
