This course provides a high touch environment for attendees to learn the theory and practice of collaborative contracting. The class size is limited to provide a rich experience where participants can interact with the UT faculty and Purspective who are pioneers in collaborative contracting.

The course uses a combination of interactive RealPlay® sessions and evocative role playing sessions designed to help you put the collaborative contracting into practice.

Course attendees are asked to complete the Getting to We online course prior to coming to the training as required pre-work. This enables participants to understand the fundamentals of collaborative contracting prior to coming to the course, enabling rich interactive discussions and dedicated time for interactive sessions. Course tuition includes the online course (priced at € 495 when taken separately.) The online course can continue to be accessed as a refresher in the future. The participants are also provided with a complimentary registration for the Vested Five Rules online course (optional, but not required pre-work).
