Community Leads

Welcome to the Oil, Gas & Petrochemical Community.

Group Mission/Vision: Provide its members with insights to new trends and emerging practices in the fields of contracting, commercial and relationship management in the oil and gas sector. This community was started by the members of IACCM in the industry to talk about issues particular to them.

The Petrochemical, Oil and Gas Community of IACCM is a global group of contracts and commercial practitioners from companies in the Petrochemical, Oil and Gas industries. The Community will create and share knowledge, within legal and ethical boundaries. The group will provide help to solve problems raised by its members related to the activites associated with commercial and contract management in the Petrochemical, Oil and Gas industries. This will be done by sharing ideas, discussing challenges, exploring new directions and, where appropriate, initiating research or inviting experts to present on key topics in the oil and gas sector related to contract, commercial and relationship management. Since this is a highly regulated industry, please be mindful of that when making postings.

The Community will:

  1. Build a vibrant network of contracts and commercial practitioners in the Petrochemical, Oil and Gas industries.
  2. Offer networking events whenever possible to our community.
  3. Provide standards and best practices for use by our community.
  4. Provide Ask the Expert Calls.
  5. Review available training and provide quality IACCM training in the Petrochemical, Oil and Gas industries
  6. Provide Subject Matter Experts and a “body of knowledge” for our community.
  7. Provide breakout forums at IACCM conferences for Petrochemical, Oil and Gas industry subjects.

Extraordinary leaders wanted!

Every day there are new examples of commercial innovation. Just yesterday, for example, I read about Electrolux and the 'uberification' of washing machines (and potentially other domestic appliances) and the link-up between ABB and Microsoft to transform interactions between suppliers and offer dynamic services to ABB customers.

Business manners across the globe

Knowing and showing respect for local culture and business manners across the globe can avoid causing unintentional offense, which could wreck a lucrative international business deal. As if the language is not enough of a barrier, anyone planning to do business in Japan should consider learning how to 'read the atmosphere'. The idea may make no sense for a Westerner, but the Japanese even have a catchy expression - kuuki yomenai - to describe the inability to perform this vital social task. In short, it means that a person is required to grasp what their Japanese interlocutors intend to do even if they do not say it aloud. Because very often they will barely utter a word.
