Критерии и факторы успешности проектов

that maximizing the created value is key criterion of success of the project and a measure of efficiency of processes
of project management. The modified quadrangular pyramid of value-oriented management of projects is
offered. The communication problem as the independent factor exerting impact on success of the project is considered.
The model of communication base of the design organization is developed.

The article is devoted to the search for factors of transnational corporations' success on the Russian market. Advantages of TNCs in comparison to other companies are analyzed. At the same time, the failure of several TNCs in Russia has shown that having those advantages is no guarantee for success on the market. The writer describes the results of her research into the activities of thirty TNCs and draws conclusions about the key factors of success in Russia.
Shale oil economics is discussed on the basis of the controversial presentation by David Einhorn at the Ira Sohn investment conference. A careful analysis suggests that most of the alleged weaknesses he flagged up in the shale oil business model are an artefact of his incorrect assuming of a too low depletion rate and, hence, too high development costs per barrel of production. Having been corrected for this error, Einhorn's calculations produce results that comply with both the companies' estimates and stock market valuations. As for the most debated issue of the discussion the Einhorn presentation provoked in the current economic periodicals, the issue of the optional value of the subsoil shale oil reserves, our opinion is that this issue cannot be addressed within the deterministic framework used by Einhorn. The discussion requires a direct stochastic approach.
The current paper aims to present the Scan-4-Light study, which was conducted for the systematic scanning and analysis of the Searchlight newsletters as a rapidly growing collection of articles on trends and topics in development and poverty. Built upon the concept of the systemic foresight methodology, the Scan-4-Light approach involves the integrated use of horizon scanning, network analysis and evolutionary scenarios combined with expert consultations and workshops. The study identified the emerging trends, issues, weak signals and wild cards; created high-value visualisations to emphasize the results and findings; and produced narratives to increase the impact and awareness of the development issues. The Scan-4-Light project has resulted in a large number of specific outputs, providing the views of the Searchlight newsletters' contents at various levels of granularity. It has set out to show how the tools used here can be applied to illustrate the relationships among issues, and how these vary across countries and regions over time, and are linked to various stakeholders and possible solutions to problems. Scan-4-Light demonstrates how foresight tools and techniques can be used for the analysis of complex and uncertain issues, such as development and poverty, in a systemic way. The Scan-4-Light approach can be applied in a number of areas for scanning and identifying emerging trends and issues, and understanding the relationships between systems and solutions. The paper gives evidence that most of the issues, if not all, related to development are not isolated, but interlinked and interconnected. They require more holistic understanding and intervention with an effective collaboration between stakeholders.
Smoking is a problem, bringing signifi cant social and economic costs to Russiansociety. However, ratifi cation of the World health organization Framework conventionon tobacco control makes it possible to improve Russian legislation accordingto the international standards. So, I describe some measures that should be taken bythe Russian authorities in the nearest future, and I examine their effi ciency. By studyingthe international evidence I analyze the impact of the smoke-free areas, advertisementand sponsorship bans, tax increases, etc. on the prevalence of smoking, cigaretteconsumption and some other indicators. I also investigate the obstacles confrontingthe Russian authorities when they introduce new policy measures and the public attitudetowards these measures. I conclude that there is a number of easy-to-implementanti-smoking activities that need no fi nancial resources but only a political will.
One of the most important indicators of company's success is the increase of its value.

At present many industries reveal tendency for setting up of vertically integrated companies (VIC) the structure of which unites all technological processes. This tendency proved its efficiency in oil industry where coordination of all successive stages of technological process, namely, oil prospecting and production -oil transportation - oil processing - oil chemistry - oil products and oil chemicals marketing, is necessary. The article considers specific features of introduction of "personnel management" module at enterprises of oil and gas industry.
