An informative one day training course on specification writing and how to produce an effective, unambiguous and accurate specification.
The specification is the primary means of communication between you and your contractor. It is one of the most important documents you write. A bad specification means that your project is at risk of being delivered inefficiently; it will cost you more, take extra time, and you will not get the results you want.
A specification is generally the first document to be written in a project. Getting it right is a key success factor for good business. Allowing enough time for rigorous research, planning, writing, checking and reviewing is crucial. It avoids delays and future cost escalation.
This training course has been designed for those who work in organisations that buy goods and services for their own use. It highlights the steps required in putting together a specification effectively.
It will develop your awareness of the different drafting styles and techniques that various specifications demand, whether writing for services, plant or equipment.
