Bill Kaplan Discusses Critical and Strategic Thinking for Contract Management Professionals at the NCMA Boston March 2016 Conference

Bill Kaplan, Founder of Working KnowledgeCSP, presented a strategic and critical thinking workshop to over 200 attendees at the NCMA Boston Chapter’s 55th Annual March 2016 Conference. One of several tracks at this conference, the conference provided contract management professionals with a varied background on topics to enhance their professional careers and self-development.

The workshop, and the conversations that took place, examined what comprises “Strategic and Critical Thinking,” and why it is an essential skill for contract management professionals.  Mr. Kaplan reviewed a critical thinking model that not only applies to the individual contract management professional, but also applies to the staff/team/peers with whom they work. When used as a part of the way contracting gets done, the results can very often be better contracting and project outcomes.

Bill Kaplan is 38 year member of the National Contract Management Association, a Certified Professional Contracts Manager (CPCM), an NCMA Fellow, and served two recent terms on the NCMA National Board of Directors.
