As part of the Diploma of Contract Management, this module examines the early stages of setting up a contract. It helps prepare participants for the phases of establishing, planning and procuring the necessary elements to increase the likelihood of the contract achieving its objectives.
This program covers the essential planning, negotiation and set up of a contract. If these areas are done well, the likelihood of a successful, conflict free contract grows significantly.
