Imperative Of Generated Traffic And Highway Investment Benefits With Equilibrium Models
Indrasen Singh
Abstract : In this paper equilibrium models are described to estimate the magnitude and composition of benefits arising from the various responses of travellers and operators to transport investments. By using these models one will determine both analytically in simplified models and numerically in network representations, the extent to which the benefits to generated traffic may be more than off-set by the additional congestion inflicted on other road users. In this paper imperative of generated traffic and highway investment benefits with equilibrium models are discussed.

Corporate Leadership As A Critical Success Factor Of International Construction And Practical Ways Of Developing IT In SINGAPORE
Ramesh Akhila
Abstract : Corporate leadership used to be so simple. You had it, or you didnt. It was in the cut of your job. And if you had it, you certainly didnt share it... Then of course the world turned upside down. Global competition wrecked stable markets and whole industries. Information technology created ad hoc networks of power within corporations. (Huey, 1994). No strategy, however well designed, will work unless you have the right people, with the right skills and behaviors, in the right roles, motivated in the right way and supported by the right leaders. Adopting new technologies without having the right people to use them wastes billions of dollars of investment by companies throughout the world. (People management and leadership forum, 2002).
