Project managers, contract managers, HR managers and other professionals involved in contract management must be able to work effectively with customers, vendors, partners or employees to achieve key objectives. Due to the new regulatory requirements, increase in volume and the complexity of contract management, a good understanding of the process is crucial and can benefit an organisation enormously.

With this in mind, Virtual College bring you An Introduction to Contract Management. This introductory course combines theory and best practice to help improve understanding and performance when it comes to managing contracts.

CIPS define contract management as 'The process of systematically and efficiently managing contract creation, execution and analysis for maximising operational and financial performance and minimising risk' but many organisations are inefficient in contract management, resulting in costly oversights, potential risks and loss of job control.
