What you learn

Scope Review: Spotting Problem Words

Our masterclass kicks off with a deep dive into the art of scrutinising scopes. You'll discover how to dissect documents with a critical eye, identify problem words, and foresee potential pitfalls. By mastering this skill, you'll gain the ability to proactively mitigate issues, ensuring a smoother procurement process from start to finish.

Deciphering Jargon vs. Technical Language

Ambiguous scope can lead to dispute. The objective of all scope writing should be to ensure that anyone can read it and understand what is going to be delivered.

In contracts, jargon and technical language often seem synonymous, but they can be worlds apart. We'll equip you with the tools to differentiate between the two, empowering you to navigate complex terminologies with confidence. This skill will help streamline communication and eliminate ambiguity in your contracts.

Rapid Review Techniques and Early Engagement

Time is money, and nowhere is this truer than in procurement. Our masterclass will teach you how to rapidly review Statements of Work and provide effective feedback. With this skill, you'll not only save valuable time but also contribute significantly to cost reduction efforts within your organisation.

Examine techniques for achieving early engagement with key stakeholders. Win early engagement with playbooks for collaboration with high value business stakeholders, thereby improving Net Promoter Scores.

Discover where to focus your energy for maximum impact and how to foster collaboration between procurement and project teams from the outset. By aligning your efforts with the broader goals of your organization, you'll become an invaluable asset to your team.

Create Measurable Deliverables and Acceptance Criteria

Gain a deep understanding of how aligning your work goals with deliverables can lead to the achievement of essential business outcomes. Discover the art of crafting acceptance criteria that guarantee key results and ensure success.
