Course Introduction

One of the major functions of contracting is to ensure that risks to owners and contractor are identified and managed in a way that both parties are satisfied with the project outcome. While a contract cannot, of itself, make risk “go away”, it can, and should, identify the risks, determine who is responsible for managing each individual risk and for the consequences should the risk occur.

The following are the highlights of this Oxford Management training course:

  • Critical understanding of the risk mitigation process
  • Knowledge to move contracts from the tactical to a more important strategic focus
  • Ability to identify risks that can arise
  • Skills in allocating contract and procurement risk
  • Examples of Contract Terms and Conditions which allocate risk

Objectives

The primary objectives of this training seminar are to help delegates to:

  • Provide an understanding of how risk arises
  • Compare different methods of identifying and assessing risk
  • Review the impacts of different approaches to risk allocation
  • Explore different Contract types to transfer risks
  • Consider the contractual techniques to ensure effective risk allocation
  • Review risk management techniques during the life of a contract

Training Methodology

Participants will increase competencies through a variety of instructional methods including lecture by an experienced practitioner and consultant, cases / exercises, reviewing published articles, checklists, and group discussions covering current practices and their relationship to the implementation of new concepts.

Delegates are encouraged to bring real problem examples with them, for discussion on a confidential basis, and to share their experience of particular issues in their company or industry. Time will be allowed for general discussions, and for one-to-one discussion with the trainer.

Organisational Impact

The organisation will benefit by:

  • Expanding the expertise of personnel involved in contract development and management will allow project and general management teams to be more effective
  • The total cost of ownership will be understood and reduced by properly identifying and managing the risks
  • Clear allocation of risk will reduce the possibility of disputes, and any that do arise should be settled more quickly, with less cost, delay and disruption
  • Reducing project failure, costly changes, and cost overruns resulting from poor understanding and management of risk
  • Implementing better risk management which improves the chance of project success
  • Developing an appreciation of the true effect of contractual indemnities which will enable better decision-making as to contract structures and ensure that risk is passed to others properly and in a cost effective manner
