'CREATE VALUE THROUGH WORKING MORE EFFECTIVELY'

DR.IR. T.C. KEES BERENDS

A WORD FROM THE CORE INSTRUCTOR

The program Contracting Engineering Projects (CEP) covers the entire contracting process from strategy development, contract preparation and formation until contract management and dealing with claims. Both employer and contractor perspectives are considered. In most cases project professionals are only involved in part of the process, being employed by one of the parties. The CEP program broadens the horizon of participants, enabling them to create value through working more effectively with colleagues and stakeholders in the value chain.
