Purchasing groups negotiate for more than simply price, and they receive more than just products and services in exchange. A buyer must also know how to negotiate the more nuanced subjects of a contract, including terms and conditions that change the value of a deal. A successful buyer must be familiar with how payment terms, liability clauses, deadlines, insurance requirements and more can mean the difference between a success and a failure in negotiation. Like all of our programs, Elements of Contracts is customized to your specific purchasing group's needs and designed to be highly interactive, allowing the participants to apply the skills we teach in scenarios relevant to your situation.
Our half-day program focuses on the key elements of successful contracts negotiations. We examine key topics such as how to use an agenda effectively to your advantage and the best order to discuss the different terms you're negotiating.
