This training programme will enable the delegates to understand the reasons behind the contractual conflict and disputes and the ways to stay away from it in the future. Most of the contracts these days are managed differently to the traditional approach, bringing in more openness between both the contracting parties. This has in some ways minimized the conflicts and improved the profitability for both the parties.
