World Congress 2022

Contracting Solutions for a “Yes, and” World. In today’s challenging environment contracting professionals can drive successful outcomes by using yes, and responses. Yes, and responses rely on having a strong foundational technical expertise, resourcefulness, and the ability to adapt as new information and conditions become known. In a fun and focused way, World Congress provides the opportunity to practice your Yes, and skills as you hone your essential contracting competencies.
