Who will manage your contracts and what skills do they need?

 

Contract manager? I prefer to say “Relationship Leader”

There are the main elements in terms of skills your relationship leader should have:

  • Strong communication skills
  • A very strong mandate from management in order to be able to operationalise your contract management

In this video, I’m talking about all these skills and why they’re important for your contract manager to have.
