About the Course

"Contracts" and "Supply Chain Management" are concepts often used in business and legal contexts, particularly in the field of procurement and business operations. A contract is a legally binding agreement between two or more parties that outlines the terms and conditions of a mutual exchange of promises or obligations. These agreements can cover a wide range of transactions. Contracts define the rights, responsibilities, and expectations of each party involved.

Supply Chain Management refers to the process of planning, sourcing, producing, and delivering goods and services to customers while optimising costs, quality, and efficiency. It involves overseeing the entire flow of materials, information, and finances across various stages, from raw material suppliers to end consumers.
