Now that we are all on holidays or just coming back is the good time to do a relaxed but critical self-assessment of our competences as Commercial or Contract Managers. This will enable you to identify your development areas for the next year.

For this self-assessment, 10 subjects have been carefully selected enabling you to perform the assessment in 2 minutes. It is targeted to Project, Contract and Tender Managers mainly active in construction, infrastructure, oil & gas and renewable energy projects. Of course, if you are slightly out of this focus group, you can still give it a try.

To keep it short, we had to leave out other important subjects like indemnity, termination, force majeure etc. By no means the questionnaire has the intention to cover all required knowledge. It is only a representative sample to establish the depth of your knowledge.

Your information will be kept strictly confidential and will not be communicated by us to anybody other than to the e-mail you may indicate, but it’s not mandatory, to receive the assessment report. Without e-mail address, you can still click on “submit” and get the result.

If you have any comments, suggestions or encouragements, you can provide them as a comment to this post.


Welcome to your Commercial and Contract self-assessment

Please select the most representative answer for you on each question. Only take an answer further down the list if all of the preceding answers are also true (except the first answer, of course).
