READERS REVIEW SECRETS OF PRODUCTIVE CONTRACTS

"I love the passion that shines thru for making contracts useable to the parties involved... I chuckled lots and lots of times...which is good, coz you wouldn’t want it to be a dry read. ...heaps of resources and tools that ...readers [can] easily access, which is such a time saver.  Fofey, Marcus Beach
 
 "[Verity writes] so effortlessly and it's so easy to read and understand..." Pia, Newtown
 
" ...the book reads well, and has left me with a desire for all contracts to be prepared in this way. It is after all that contracts should serve the signatories, not the lawyers who draw up the contract. One can only hope this approach gets picked up." Richard, Mount Coolum
 
"Wow! Instant 5 Stars ... I’ve found myself on the wrong end of some very labour intensive and poorly constructed contracts... This gem of a book was a quick read and provided a myriad of insights in simple to understand terms and analogies that all can understand. I was particularly fond of ‘Reverse Sandwich Contracting’ ... I’ve already used it in several improvement focused meetings to great effect. The ‘Easy Wins’ resource towards the books end provides several fast and effective changes that are a great way to gain credibility when entering a new organisation or taking on the management of a new contract." Nick, Canberra
 
"A great read, full of practical ideas and insights to improve contracts to better suit the needs of legal teams and the contract users. The author's use of wit and humor to makes this an enjoyable book for anyone that touches a contract." Ryan, Mitcham
 
"...highly entertaining but also filled with really practical and helpful suggestions. ... easy to understand ... I enjoyed reading this book, and look forward to being able to put the secrets into practice!" Lauren, Box Hill

WHAT IS A PRODUCTIVE CONTRACT?

Contracts make the world go round. Whether they are online or on paper, having an agreement should make the rights and obligations of each person or business clear.

If your business has contracts that you can't understand, it's not just a problem for your customers, it's a problem for you. Similarly, if your company is writing contracts for lawyers, your contracts are slowing your company down at every stage.

How does an unproductive contract slow you down?

  • At creation - the contracts take longer for lawyers to draft.
  • At negotiation - key details are hard to find, making review difficult.
  • At signing - executives need unclear contracts explained to them before they sign.
  • At implementation - what was agreed to and what needs to be done.
  • At dispute - it's hard to find and understand the rights of each party.
  • At renewal - difficult to manage the lifecycle of a contract where key details are unclear.
  • And if something changes, your company needs to understand how the contract works with that change.

Contracts need to do more than just sit in a drawer.
