Managing Difficult Contracts

Now that Procuring Successful Mega-Projects is in the hands of the publisher, I am starting to be more active in the real world again. Recently I gave a joint presentation with Owen Hayford of Clayton Utz at one of their training events. The subject was ‘Today’s solution to yesterday’s deal: managing difficult contracts’.

I presented on some of the things you can do at a management level to improve the workings of a difficult contract, then Owen took over and looked at some of the more drastic remedies you might call upon when the management-level stuff has failed,

We turned it into a two-part article: you can now read my part on the Clayton Utz website. Owen’s part will be published there in the next edition of Clayton Utz Insights.
