Featuring new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Commercial Management improvements can be made.
10 examples of the standard requirements:
- What level of information is needed and its potential impact on the approval process and on commercial mining operations, its likelihood of success in mitigating environmental impacts?
- Have any contracting positions been upgraded to reflect the more sophisticated skill levels required to implement acquisition reform and innovative commercial contracting practices?
- Has the use of commercially-available products and other products in every system development process been reviewed from a technical perspective with involvement by experts?
- What controls are in place to ensure that management fees paid to connected parties are made at commercial rates and are commensurate to services or products provided?
- Should the established commercial relationship be assessed with regard to the relationship between the Relevant Undertaking and its subcontractors or suppliers?
- Are the commercial suppliers stable, or are changes in ownership or business arrangements likely to make an existing commercial product obsolete in the future?
- What role should authentication and identity management controls play in a comprehensive set of cyber security measures available to commercial organizations?
- Do the authentication and/or identity management controls employed by commercial organizations or business sectors, in general, provide adequate assurance?
- Which, if any, prevent or discourage you and/or your organization from applying the principles of acquisition reform or innovative commercial contracting?
- Does the focal organization employ sole ownership of each business or is it involved in joint ventures or strategic alliances in some, or all, businesses?

Defining, designing, creating, and implementing a process to solve a business challenge or meet a business objective is the most valuable role; In EVERY company, organization and department.
Unless you are talking a one-time, single-use project within a business, there should be a process. Whether that process is managed and implemented by humans, AI, or a combination of the two, it needs to be designed by someone with a complex enough perspective to ask the right questions. Someone capable of asking the right questions and step back and say, 'What are we really trying to accomplish here? And is there a different way to look at it?'
This Toolkit empowers people to do just that - whether their title is entrepreneur, manager, consultant, (Vice-)President, CxO etc... - they are the people who rule the future. They are the person who asks the right questions to make Commercial Management investments work better.
This Commercial Management All-Inclusive Toolkit enables You to be that person.
