THE IACCM AEROSPACE & DEFENSE NETWORK

The purpose of the Aerospace and Defense Network is to provide its members with insights to new trends and emerging practices in the fields of contract, commercial and relationship management. While these will be in the context of the aerospace and defense sector, they will draw from knowledge and ideas that are current and relevant in other sectors and those related to the industry (e.g. government). A key goal is to improve the performance of contracts and relationships.

The objectives will be met by sharing ideas, discussing challenges, exploring new directions and, where appropriate, initiating research or inviting experts to present on key topics related to contract, commercial and relationship management.

Meetings will be virtual (by phone or webinar) unless in specific cases there is an agreed wish to have physical meetings or workshops to develop specific initiatives.

 

Please take a minute to participate in the following survey https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/IACCMAerospaceandDefense

Keynote address: the case for optimism - what are you optimistic about? IACCM Americas Conference 2019

How many business leaders do you know who aren't optimists? Indeed, IACCM surveys have suggested that our members often attribute failed projects to the over-optimism of top management. As a result, many see the role of contract and commercial managers as bringing balance, a dose of reality, facing up to the real risks. For the executive optimists, this may be viewed as pessimism or negativity - and lead to us having limited or late involvement. Optimism is a good trait. Research shows it is associated with better health, a longer life and greater success. How can we best temper our need to be commercially realistic with a healthy dose of optimism - the sort of attitude that gains attention and increases our value? In this fascinating and energizing session, Victor will inspire, amuse and be your guide to discovering how you can apply optimism within your business role and life in general, acknowledging the mantra 'All good leadership is optimistic'.

Commercial innovation Workshop - IACCM Americas Conference 2019

New approaches, new ideas, and new types of relationships and commitments play ever-more central roles in business survival. Technology often drives innovation, but success mostly depends on the human side of the equation: on commercial innovation. At its simplest, innovation can be defined as 'something different that has impact.' It can be strategic or operational, and it can be incremental or transformational. But to succeed, it must have impact. This workshop will help you: • Investigate the commercial innovation going on in the business community; • Discover how to move innovation projects from idea to impact; and • Meet like-minded professionals-people who are innovating or looking to innovate.

Localization of the US based contract and UCC waiver removal as not applicable under a foreign law.

Dear All, As we are trying localize the US based agreement to EU based jurisdiction I have an urgent question in respect of: WAIVING ALL RIGHTS AND REMEDIES CONFERRED UPON A LESSEE BY ARTICLE 2A OF THE UNIFORM COMMERCIAL CODE OF THE USA. Specifically I am working on the below provision: WARRANTY DISCLAIMER AND UCC WAIVER. EXCEPT FOR THE EXPRESS WARRANTIES SET FORTH IN THIS SECTION [xxxxx], SUPPLIER MAKE NO OTHER WARRANTIES, WHETHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED; AND SUPPLIER ON BEHALF OF ITSELF DISCLAIMS AND CUSTOMER ON BEHALF OF ITSELF WAIVES ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF NON-INFRINGEMENT, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND MERCHANTABILITY, AND ANY WARRANTIES RELATING TO DESIGN, PERFORMANCE, FUNCTIONALITY, OR COMPATIBILITY WITH CUSTOMER'S SYSTEMS. EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY PROVIDED HEREIN AND AS PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, CUSTOMER WAIVES ALL RIGHTS AND REMEDIES CONFERRED UPON A LESSEE BY ARTICLE 2A OF THE UNIFORM COMMERCIAL CODE OF THE USA ('UCC'). I want to remove references to the UCC as this is not applicable in a European country but I am just wondering if I won't omit some important matters that should be added from the local law perspective. Obviously I'll consult this with our legal counsel but considering that person is unavailable at the moment and a fast contract turnaround is required I would at least like to highlight important matters that I could otherwise omit. The revamped wording would be: WARRANTY DISCLAIMER. EXCEPT FOR THE EXPRESS WARRANTIES SET FORTH IN THIS SECTION [xxxxx], SUPPLIER MAKE NO OTHER WARRANTIES, WHETHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED; AND SUPPLIER ON BEHALF OF ITSELF DISCLAIMS AND CUSTOMER ON BEHALF OF ITSELF WAIVES ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF NON-INFRINGEMENT, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND MERCHANTABILITY, AND ANY WARRANTIES RELATING TO DESIGN, PERFORMANCE, FUNCTIONALITY, OR COMPATIBILITY WITH CUSTOMER'S SYSTEMS. I would appreciate your urgent assistance. Kind regards, Piotr
