Things to do in your first year as a GC:
The article is of course US based GC but a lot applies for Europe / Global as well. One interesting part was the following statement in item 48.
Set up a working database for contracts. Include the party’s name, address (and its address for notice if different), dollar amount, termination provisions, whether the contract is assignable, any clauses to watch out for that are different than your company’s standard provisions, etc. [The contributor of this item reported, “This is the most critical thing that I do and have done, I feel pretty clear about that.”]
I could not agree more – bringing up a contract database and contract management is a key item in any corporation!
