Context recognizes that many IT contracts are negotiated and completed without the assistance of outside counsel. The reasons for this may be financial or otherwise, but one constant remains the same -- you still need to protect your organization's business, financial and legal interests. IT contracts can be complex. There may be multiple regulatory issues to address. Protecting your organization's interests may be challenging. Context will better enable you to protect your organization while you negotiate and complete IT contracts internally.
Over the past ten years Context has trained in-house counsel, senior level executives and other professionals within numerous large and mid-sized organizations. Some of the organizations we have trained are:
- Mayo Clinic
- Marshfield Clinic
- Virginia Mason Medical Center
- Billings Clinic
- Hennepin County Attorney's Office
Our training courses are designed to impart knowledge, strategy and contractual language (including potential fallback provisions) to attendees. Our training goal is simple -- to better enable the organization to protect itself. Some of the customized training courses we have provided include:
- Software Licensing Agreements
- System Integration Agreements
- Outsourcing Agreements
- Consulting Agreements
- Application Service Provider Agreements
In an effort to demonstrate the value of our training courses, we have attached the following sample training document:
Sometimes the internal challenge may be getting personnel to understand the importance of IT contracts and how such contracts are critical to an organization's future. Context recognizes this, and has provided numerous customized training classes to meet this challenge. Such customized training courses have included:
- Treating IT Contracts As Business Management Tools
- How To Acquire IT The Right Way
- Managing The IT Contracting Process and the IT Contract
Our training courses are customized to meet an organization's needs. Training courses can range from 2 to 8 hours (or over multiple days, if desired) and there is no limit on the number of potential attendees. Written training materials are provided and would contain valuable, practical and, most importantly, usable information. We have been told by many organizations that our training materials have become the “handbook” they rely on as they internally negotiate and complete IT contracts.
Context would be happy to discuss how our training courses will assist your organization.
