Until now, there has no book that sets out structures and
strategies for sound supply contract management. This
book sets out to do more than this: it aligns the science
of sourcing and procuring of supplies/suppliers with the
art of smart contract management. And it does so based on
the author's sound knowledge of global markets and keen
understanding of commercial deal-making, flanked with the
legal pillars that maintain governance in an otherwise
chaotic state of variation.
What is also special about
this book is that it recognises the challenges of mixing
the science of procurement with the art of contract
management and works out ways to blend the cultural
The book is set out in a structured way to allow
managers of business areas or their own businesses to
manage contracts from a holistic standpoint,
understanding and planning the reasons for seeking a
contract before the suppliers are selected and before
negotiations take shape.
Supply contract management is
explained as a 4 stage process from plan - to - procure -
to - manage - to - review so that all the layers of
contract management can be peeled away to shape the best
fit supply chain.
This book shapes best practice on a
global scale, and in a very real and pragmatic way, using
examples and case studies for illustration. By doing so,
it is both a guide, a business coach and a form of
handbook for any manager - or indeed supplier - working
in any part of the supply chain.
