Project Management has, as one of its essential ingredients, development, use, administration and management of contract. On any significant project here will be many players and stakeholders contractually linked. It is essential therefore that all project personnel be aware of contract matters. The difficulty with this for project personnel in the past, however, has been in finding a systematic and comprehensive coverage of contractual matters in the literature, written at an understandable lever. This book goes toward filling this void.
This book focuses on the important issues of whether to contract out (outsource) work or do it in-house, on the numerous contractual payment options including bonuses and penalties, and on the delivery method or contractual relationships between project participants. This is provided in an international context, where project management takes on an added dimension related to differing practices and customs between countries.
Numerous case studies and exercises are given to promote the understanding of the contractual and project management issues covered.
