GLS Playbook™

Making every negotiation your best

The Problem

Contracts can take a long time to close if only a few people know how to negotiate them.  

Related challenges include: 

  • the inability to support contract negotiations tends to yield sub-optimal outcomes 
  • your legal/procurement teams have finite resources  
  • not all contract negotiators are equal in skill and experienced 
  • inadequate contracting support can expose your organisation to legal, commercial and operational risks 
  • smaller organisations do not have expert legal and/or procurement resources 
  • larger counterparties often bully your business team into submission 
  • your legal team’s limited resources are stretched to its breaking point  

Wouldn’t it be good if your best contract negotiator could support every deal that you negotiate?
