Your biggest, untapped asset will define your future, drive increased profits, and accelerate growth. But only if you’re managing it correctly.
What’s the key to business success? Ask 10 people and 10 different answers will likely emerge. However, this isn’t one of those polysemous, everyone-is-right type questions. There is only one right answer. And the world’s greatest business experts (Peter Drucker, Mark McCormack, and others) all answer the same—relationships.
On a personal level, you try the products recommended to you by trusted friends; you buy from the brands you know. From a business perspective, not much changes—you partner with reputable companies, you buy from vetted suppliers. Business and consumer alike, you vote with your wallet everyday.
In today’s business landscape, and with the speed and scale at which information moves, there are new expectations from both businesses and consumers, and those expectations have never been higher. Relationships have become paramount to your success—customers, partners, employees, the list goes on—making whom you trust and who trusts you now your biggest asset.
There’s one key overlooked area that’s crucial here—the underlying foundation for what makes these relationships possible; the physical manifestation of these all-important relationships—contracts.
Because a contract isn’t just a document or an agreement, it’s a relationship.
Contracts, social or otherwise, define expectations. When it comes to your business, contracts are the epicenter of revenue generation and creating a sense of security and trust. They’re the blueprint for your company’s future. Clear, efficient, effective contract management therefore has never been more critical. How will you keep up?
