Webinar Full – Registration is now closed. The Case for the CMBOK: Bridging the Gap between Theory and Application
This webinar has reached capacity and registration is now closed.
The NCMA contract management body of knowledge has been in existence since at least 1985. However, the first formal publication of the NCMA Contract Management Body of Knowledge (CMBOK) was published seventeen years later in 2002. Since then, the CMBOK, now in its 7th edition, has been adopted by government agencies (both state and federal), private companies, and academia. But how is the CMBOK being adopted? How can it be adopted? Where does the CMBOK fit in developing organizational training and formal education programs? This webinar will discuss how the CMBOK can be used in training and formal education curricula. The specific focus will be on how the CMBOK can be used to bridge the gap between the academic theories that inform contract management principles and the application of those principles by the contracting workforce.
