Question 1
When setting selection criteria for selecting a project manager, it is important to apply a just and consistent technique for measuring proposals. Most organizations use selection criteria to assist them screen applicants. The goal is to ensure that the same, unbiased principles are used for each applicant and will lead you to a more objective conclusion.
It’s a good plan to use the selection criteria and produce a scoring matrix—and then run all the answers against the matrix. They should contain multiple committee staff to reach an objective totaling of the scores. They might wish to split the technical assessment from the cost or price assessment and decide how much the technical will matter and how much the cost will count in the overall total.
Things to take into consideration in selection criteria should include:
Number of compulsory responses, set a good enough reply level for the project so that if you don’t get a sufficient number of responses, you can assess whether to go on or redefine the need to get additional proposals.
When looking for a project manager, choose those with familiarity that matches your needs.
Professional experience—including: • Breadth and deepness of experience • Knowledge of the road industry and this type of project • Technical capability and experience • His/her ability to expand practical advice • Capacity to build trust and work successfully with management and other personnel • Ability to administer projects and stay both on schedule and within the set budget • Past experience—did previous engagements meet the clients’ objectives?

Commercial Management and Risks

...Commercial Management and Risks Job brief Commercial management is the identification and development of business opportunities and profitable management of a project from inception to completion. A commercial manager has to understand how to make profit and how the profit is reflected in its operations. In a construction site, commercial management deals with outlining the beginning of a project i.e. the negotiations and analyzing of the cost of the whole construction project and the long term profit to be yielded by the project. It is said that every construction is unique, and the unique aspect demands a high level of commercial and technical expertise. As a commercial manager, I will provide a management system that ensures proper documentation. This entails that all the documents of the contract follow a full legal procedure that is the land on which the construction is taking place and is acquired legally. The tender details are all available and the contract details of the contractor and his team are all available and ensure clarity to reduce future conflicts between the client and the contractor as Lowe and Leiringer (2006) argue. System devised Programme The system will also define a well defined target.

Porter’s 5 Forces & the Russian Commercial Banking Sector and Wealth Management Industry

...PORTER’S 5 FORCES & THE RUSSIAN COMMERCIAL BANKING SECTOR AND WEALTH MANAGEMENT INDUSTRY Today’s Russian Federation is characterized by low competitiveness in the context of firm strategy and rivalry, a supportive infrastructure for industries, a mixed bag when factor or input conditions are assessed (human resources, capital resources physical infrastructure, etc.…), and a polarized consumer base, where some hold most of the wealth, while the rest are quite average or below the poverty line. It is an overachieving country, with high income compared to low competitive index. In Porter’s Diamond-E Framework, Russia is in the Efficiency-Driven Stage; it is an investment-driven economy. This is not congruent with the general analysis of the banking industry worldwide, when looking at it through Porter’s Five Forces Model. Applying the model to this sector yields high barriers of entry, a moderate power of suppliers in terms of their ability to lure away human capital, increased power of buyers in terms of switching costs, many substitutes, and a high competitive rivalry. To better assess the entry of The Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) into the Russian market, one must also consider Canada-Russian relations. Being the two largest Artic countries, Canada and Russia share many common opportunities and challenges. The countries have a long history of cooperation on issues such as science, energy and environmental protection, and in 2012, promising areas of......

Commercial Banks

...COMMERCIAL BANKS Commercial banks are important financial intermediaries serving the general public in any society. In most cases, commercial banks hold more assets than any other financial institution, in some cases, even more than Central Banks. Apart from their many functions, commercial banks facilitate growth and development. They lend in many areas or sectors of the economy. Viewed from the real sector, they contribute to investments, employment creation, and by extension the process of economic growth. In Trinidad and Tobago there are 8 commercial banks as follows; • Bank of Baroda (Trinidad and Tobago) Limited • Citibank (Trinidad & Tobago) Limited • FirstCaribbean International Bank (Trinidad & Tobago) Limited • First Citizens Bank Limited • Intercommercial Bank Limited • Republic Bank Limited • Scotiabank Trinidad and Tobago Limited • RBC Royal Bank (Trinidad and Tobago) Limited There are many other institutions such as credit unions, development banks, mutual funds to name a few. However, notwithstanding this commercial banks can be described as the head of the financial system. They are by far the largest mobilizers of savings and providers of loanable funds. They now account for over 50% of the total assets of the financial system and far more than half of the financial savings of the domestic economy. (See Table 1) Assets of the banking System (2001-2008) [pic]With all these......
