Good contract management involves much more than just adhering to all regulations, processes and deadlines. What is often not understood is that contract management is a comprehensive, complex process. Software can support the management of this process, but the alignment of contracts with business strategy and situation is key.

Regardless of whether a consulting project is desired when it comes to the management and negotiation of important contracts, or an interim manager who takes over or optimizes the management of large contracts in your company: Emarticon is your specialist for Strategic Procurement and Supply Chain Consulting as well as contract management!

Strategic contract management - good contracts need a lot of expertise

Good contract management means more than the mere use of software and the coordination of the three subject areas of commercial, technical and legal aspects. When managing contracts in a large company distinguish two main forms:

  • Classic contract manager: The artisanal, the craftsman:
  • Understands all regulations and content of the contract (commercially, technically and legally) with a focus on commercial consequence

  • Supervises compliance with all regulations including processes and deadlines

  • Ensures coordination and resolution of conflicts and coordinates the three issues – commercial, technical and legal aspects – in discussions or alignment meetings

  • Strategic contract manager: With additional consulting and management experience:
  • Manages a contract not just according to its existing content, but ensures its optimal strategic orientation for the company based on management expertise and experience

  • Aligns the contract with new business needs and also creates new, efficient processes if needed

Hence, the strategic contract manager not only ensures correct compliance with contractual processes and regulations, but also ensures that these processes and regulations are also optimally suited to the respective situation of the company. The Emarticon is characterized by the fact that these two forms of contract management are combined in our projects and contract management approach and are understood as a holistic process.
