Attitudes to Contracting: Are they undermining performance?

Published: 11 Feb 2014 Average Rating: 3.4 / 5 Print

Author: Tim Cummins

Towards the end of 2013, almost 700 experienced practitioners contributed to a survey that explored 'attitudes to contracting'. Contributors came from Project Management, Contract Management, Legal and operational / delivery teams, offering an expanded view of what purposes a contract should fulfil - and to what extent those purposes are being achieved. The survey was a joint effort between IACCM and the UK's National Audit Office. In this webinar, we will share and discuss the results, which suggest that there are major benefits to be won from improved contracting disciplines and we will discuss how some of these might be achieved.

A great article. Roles and responsibilities are often overlooked. We instead, as a buying organisation, like to define how something should be delivered.
