Master Class - What is the Business Value of Efficient Contract Management?

When:  Dec 2, 2021 from 11:00 to 12:00 (ET)

With a complex web of people, process and technology, contract management can sometimes feel like a system that’s impervious to change. So how do you put more management controls on your contracting to add efficiency, reduce risk, and yield more value for your organization? Taking an honest look at your current state is a great place to start, and a high integrity contract repository provides the foundation for real improvement. But that’s just the beginning.

If gaining better control of your contracting is one of your 2022 resolutions, then please join us for a one-hour webinar on Thursday, December 2 at 9AM PST with Prashant Dubey, VP of Contracts Solutions & Disability Inclusion at Elevate, and Danielle Haugland, Global Alliance Director at Agiloft. The panelists will discuss how you can put more management processes on your contracting, including:

  1. Why a dynamic contract repository is foundational to establishing a single source of truth and taking charge of contracts
  2. How to create efficiency and lower variability (and therefore risk) in contracting - standardize and harmonize the templates you use for contracting
  3. How to create a functional playbook for contracts so that the place you end up during negotiation is within your risk threshold
