This Contract Negotiation training course teaches delegates how to successfully negotiate contracts, agreements, and disputes, whilst sustaining positive relations with the parties involved. Delegates will learn a wide range of efficient negotiating techniques and mechanisms, accompanied by an evaluation of negotiating methods.
Delegates will also acquire knowledge of what to do if a disagreement arises when the contract is in progress. Emphasis is placed on the importance of effective contract negotiation for business success. This Contract Management training course takes a practical approach, as it uses interactive procedures such as workshops, case studies, and tasks so delegates acquire an understanding of how to implement the knowledge they gain.
Delegates will become familiar with the fundamentals of contract negotiation and will enhance their understanding of why it is necessary for business processes. They will also study negotiation strategies, styles, ethics, and methods. Vital communication skills will be enhanced, and factors that may impact successful negotiation, i.e. culture, will be explored.Back to top
