Avoiding Unnecessary Contract Negotiation Delays with the “Deal Room”

Getting to the metaphorical contract negotiation handshake can be long or short, relatively easy or painfully difficult. Whenever a contract is negotiated, the negotiation process is burdened by things that are out or our control. Will it be balanced? Does our counterpart care about win-win? Will it be predatory? Will it be truthful? Will unfair contract terms be imposed as a result of the size and economic strength of the other party?

At one time it was thought that the best way to solve ECM needs was to purchase an ECM suite from a single vendor that provided all the necessary modular functionality required by a content management repository.
