Contract managers will always engage in the negotiation, implementation, and management of a company’s contracts to some degree. However, the role of a contract manager has been gradually changing as the global economic landscape continues to shift and evolve. These days, a contract manager must do far more than serve in an operational capacity, as they had traditionally done for quite some time. Now, the scope of a contract managers's day-to-day responsibilities also entails a great deal of strategic evaluation, planning, and execution. Contract managers must, of course, continue to manage contracts diligently, but they must also actively monitor compliance, analyze performance, and make strategic changes as appropriate in order to promote the growth of the company.
