Set your contracts and projects up for success

Almost all large projects involve significant contracts and complex supply chains. Yet many run into numerous problems because there isn’t enough focus on commercial or contract management during the project’s set-up and delivery.

Our experts can help your business understand how to manage contracts and third parties within complex project environments. We will help you avoid the common pitfalls and make the process much smoother.

There are numerous reasons why it can be difficult to deliver projects on time, within budget and to specification. Commercially complex, high-risk and high-cost endeavours, for both clients and suppliers, need sophisticated contractual relationships with key suppliers and their sub-contractors.

The challenge

Everyone from CEOs to stakeholders and shareholders wants delivery teams to stick to agreed timelines, which often adds an extra layer of pressure. When there are lots of multi-layered projects happening at once, it can be tricky to coordinate and manage. It takes a unique combination of leadership, creativity, teamwork, and technical delivery skills, across a number of specialist teams and organisations, to keep everything on track.

We can help you evaluate if your contract(s) and commercial management of the project are setting it up for success. For example, are your delivery partners incentivised to make the project work, or do they make more profit if the project overruns?
