I’ve been having a few conversations with different organisations in the last few weeks and the word contracting has come up a few times.
What do people mean by it? In some cases, it’s the design of the framework around the work, for others it’s the expectations of the work, for others the delivery timetable.
Once again, the language we use matters. A lot of the work we do is about translating and framing activity into common language and terms which are transparent, consistent, valid and (perhaps most important) agreed.
What does contracting mean to you? Let me know in the comments.
