Managing risk and preventing disputes begins with negotiating contracts that are clear in meaning, precise in language, and meaningful in scope.

  • Defining key stakeholders, clauses, and terms during negotiations
  • Identifying your areas of largest potential risk in pricing, potential delays, and delivery system
  • Negotiating risks regardless of organization or bargaining position
  • Defining clear project parameters for each participant
  • Developing a realistic expectation of project scope
