Why contract management?

Today, both private and public companies are under pressure to realize economic goals and increase efficiency. At the same time, the complexity of the services we supply and procure is growing. Over time our world has evolved from manufacturing to services – and the contracts are numerous and more complex than ever before. 


Good contract management can be seen on the bottom line 

The development places higher demands on the organizations’ handling of contracts. And it places particular demands on the people who are working with the contracts. This is where contract and commercial management (CCM) comes into play. 

A study by World Commerce and Contracting (former IACCM) revealed a very clear difference of almost 10% on the bottom line between good and bad practice in relation to contract management.


Some key figures

  • 50-75% of private companies' in- and outputs are currently regulated by contracts 
  • An estimate reads that the number of contracts has increased by 50% in the last 25 years 
  • 30-35% of organizations contracts do not provide the expected value 
  • The cost of this corresponds to 9,2% of the annual turnover for the contract budget

companies that introduce contract management often get higher value on Stock exchanges? They are sold at a higher price, as the value and risks of the contracts are known exactly - therefore buyers and investors dare to pay more.
