Program Summary

This seminar focuses on the in’s and out’s of drafting effective statements of work. Statements of work are one of the most key elements of most professional services, outsourcing, cloud services, and software licenses. They define the services to be provided fees, project schedule, milestones, deliverables, project management, and other relevant terms for professional service engagements. While seen and drafted every day, they are undoubtedly one of the greatest source of disputes, cost overruns, and project schedule failures in these types of transactions.

Key topics to be discussed:

  • The information to obtain before you start drafting a statement of work
  • The seven key risks to avoid in statements of work
  • What actually constitutes a statement of work and how does it relate to the overarching agreement
  • Techniques for mitigating risks
