Innovative Trends in Technology Contracting

August 20

Understand the leading trends in technology contract formation and the innovative methods used to streamline the content of good agreements.

Unlike many areas of procurement, the acquisition of information technology solutions (hardware, software, software-as-a-service, business process outsourcing, telephony, and technical consulting) nearly always requires the formation of a written contract to mitigate risks for both the provider and customer. The complexity of technology contracting is increasing dramatically with key changes in solution delivery. Without a sophisticated understanding of new risks, today’s procurement leaders can be caught off guard in these critical negotiations. This topic will explain leading trends in technology contract formation and construction being used by leading companies and governmental agencies. It will explain innovative methods to simplify and streamline the content of good agreements. The instructor will share real-world contracts management examples from his career and consulting experience. He will illustrate key points using actual language examples.
