Written contracts play an increasingly important part in the regulation of modern business relationships and transactions. This is especially true for corporations and governments using outsourcing and partnering to find more efficient ways to do business. And with a growing focus on regulatory compliance, the number and complexity of written contracts is rising steadily. Many large enterprises can find themselves managing hundreds, thousands, and sometimes tens of thousands of contracts. These include buy-side contracts with suppliers, sell-side contracts with customers, and various other contracts with business partners, investors, employees, etc. Responsibility for these contracts can be shared between line managers, contracts professionals, lawyers (internal and external) and administrative staff.
