Contracts are the lifeblood of any organization. But with overwhelming manual workloads, disorganized storage practices, and the lack of monitoring capabilities, legal departments and contract administrators constantly experience a wealth of problems in managing their contracts.

Without a centralized contract management system, organizations run the risk of revenue leakage, missed milestones, and compliance issues. Hence, companies must develop a contract lifecycle management (CLM) strategy to help them automate workflows, streamline processes, overcome contract bottlenecks, and reduce legal and compliance risks.

Join contract experts Colin Levy and Matt Patel (Malbek) as they delve into an in-depth analysis of the latest contract lifecycle management trends and developments. The speakers will also discuss strategic approaches and tools to help legal teams modernize their CLM processes.

Some of the major topics that will be covered in this course are:

  • Contract Lifecycle Management (CLM): Recent Trends
  • Key Benefits and Potential Risks
  • Designing an Effective CLM Strategy
  • Best Implementation Practices and Tools
  • What Lies Ahead

Contract lifecycle management is not just about contracts. It's about uniting business functions to manage important agreements together in harmony and harnessing contract data to make informed decisions.

  • The evolution of legal from “cost center” to value creator
  • Freeing up legal’s time spent on contracts by adopting a solution that allows teams to manage contracts collaboratively


Understand your use cases. 

  • What does an ideal outcome for your organization look like? Use the answer to that question to drive your evaluation of solutions.

Understand your existing pain points. 

  • Where do things go awry in your contracting process most often? Which teams/stakeholders do these broken processes impact the most?


Outcomes: What does “good” look like for your organization? What do you want a CLM to improve?

Configuration/User experience: A CLM solution needs to be intuitive to empower business users beyond the legal team. End users and admins should be able to configure templates and workflows independently as business needs change with no reliance on the vendor.

Contract management ecosystem: CLM solutions should be one part of your contract management ecosystem. Extensibility is key. How can CLM support organizational initiatives by seamlessly integrating with existing business systems?
