Academics Network

The purpose of this Network is to provide its members with a forum to share insights to new trends and emerging practices in the fields of contract, commercial and relationship management. We encourage the sharing of research and knowledge across the academic sector, and hope that collaborations amongst the members will lead to new insights and practices, as well as encourage the field of study to grow. A key goal is to grow the visibility of the study of contracts and commercial management along with roads to increased performance and professionalism.

2020 Challenges in Partnerships

A survey among alliances & partnerships professionals in Europe and Asia resulted in 5 themes that these professionals see as their main challenges in their work for 2020. Except for the specific outside circumstances most of these themes are not new in 2020, yet appear to be continuing challenges in our profession. Some of the challenges the respondents see can be handled by a solid governance structure most by rigorous alliance management. A short article about the preliminary findings can be read here: https://www.petersimoons.com/2020/01/2020-challenges-in-alliances-partnerships/

Dfining KPIs and Creating Dashbo

Hi All, I am a fresh member of the portal. Looking for some insights in regards to defining KPIs. We are a team of 3 Contract Managers and our manager has asked us to define KPIs and create a dashboard biweekly for her to have an insight of what we are doing. I believe the next step will be having score cards to measure the performances. I have been searching the web and thinking about this deeply for some time now. I was only able to come up with 3 KPIs but still need to define 1 more. And I am not sure if this has been answered before. Is there a document I can relate on to? Would appreciate any leading. Thank you in advance.

Joint Ventures

Hi Would anyone be happy to have a discussion with me, or give me some pointers on managing a JV where you are both a customer, supplier and a shareholder? It would be good to understand how other companies navigate this tricky relationship and if there is any IACCM best practice I should adhere too? I have different contract managers who are responsible for the customer and supplier side to eliminate any conflict of interest, but the whole governance is so much more complex than a straight commercial arrangement. Therefore, if anyone has any experience or observations they would be happy to share, I would really appreciate your help. Kind Regards Jan

Webinar - Building the Foundation for Professional and Organizational Success

I like the idea of asking new employees what their learning style is during the onboarding training period. I too am a visual learner, so by seeing and doing the work first-hand during training helps me to learn better and faster. Good idea as it helps promote inclusion and diversity and increase employee morale as not everyone's learning style is the same and should make the employee comfortable in a new environment.
