Contract Design & Simplification​ Workshops

Crash courses in how to transform your contracts to help achieve business goals!

Our workshop process

  • To design a contract you need to consider who will use it. Contracts often have diverse audiences, with different language backgrounds and types of expertise. So, they should be designed to support all readers, not just lawyers and judges.

  • To achieve this, it’s essential we equip contract creators with the right tools to design inclusively. This requires a holistic approach focusing on human needs and the jobs to be done — because contracts don’t make things happen, people do!

  • Our workshops are a multidisciplinary and collaborative hands-on experience. We bring together insights from the fields of information design, plain language, contract management, data and analytics, and the law.
