Work begins before
it starts®

Deployed are committed to helping you make every project a success, which is why we offer learning programs to authors, editors, and publishers of project contracts. It helps teams to master the skills they need to work smarter, together. Our learning department is dedicated to understanding our clients' challenges and ambitions, and creating learning experiences that equip their teams to achieve the change they want.

This is done through training needs analysis, online learning, virtual masterclasses, and tool kits. Our learning programs have helped many teams get a leading edge in procurement.

“The course has broadened my understanding and knowledge in the art of writing and building the right SoW for the business. I am now better equipped to define the correct outcome based SoW that helps the business to get better organised and increase the quality of communication between all parties. My "thanks" go out to the team at Deployed for running a great remote course!”
