One of the most important functions of contracting is ensuring that risks to both the contractor and the owners are identified and managed in such a way that both parties are satisfied with the project results. While a contract cannot make risk "go away," it can and should identify the risks, as well as who is responsible for managing each individual risk and the consequences if the risk occurs.

The following are the highlights of this training course:

  • Critical understanding of the risk mitigation process

  • Knowledge to move contracts from the tactical to a more important strategic focus
