The negotiating model or framework adopted at the formation of the International Labour Organisation (ILO) in 1919 placed the representatives of workers and employers on an equal footing with government representatives in decision making (Maupain 2013). The tripartite arrangement makes the ILO a unique agency within the United Nations system (Simpson, 1994). However, the configuration of the government group evolved during and after the cold war resulting in complex multi- layers of negotiating units (Newman et al, 2006; Muldoon et al; 2010; Hampson & Heinbecker 2011). Furthermore, there are issues around the “paper” balance of power between governments and social partners in the negotiation processes let alone the representativeness of those that negotiate on behalf of the workers and employers (Thomas, 1996; Muldoon et al, 2010; Standing, 2010). The contemplated research will explore and analyse the inter-actor relationships and the attributes of the negotiating model or framework in the ILO

Managers have to ensure the engagement of four different generational groups as part of the workforce. The conflict between generations and its negative impact on workforce productivity, company progress and overall advancement has long been acknowledged. The millennial problem, which refers to the set of ideas that the individuals born between 1975 and 2000 are ill-fit for the work environment, is correlated with an ambiguity surrounding Generation Z; There is a lack of information about the generational groups born after Millienials, from 1995 to 2009. Therefore, ensuring an operationally functional work environment is believed to be problematic and difficult. The contemplated research intends to examine the values, work condition inclinations and preferred managerial style of Generation Z employees.

In the current business climate with aggressive competition and increasing demands for improved performance and profits, sustainable growth strategies are key to any successful programme delivery. Successful programmes invariably occur as a result of effective and strong leadership by those who truly understand the programme environment as well as the challenges and the opportunities that are created. A programme is defined as a temporary, flexible organisation created to coordinate, direct and oversee the implementation of a set of related projects and activities in order to deliver outcomes and benefits related to the strategic objectives of the organisation. Programmes are generally about delivering change with a series of outcomes and these are invariably interlinked. The contemplated research examines programme management strategies for improved delivery of major construction activities of large projects in both Europe and the Middle Eastern regions. This is achieved through a triangulation of three research domains, namely: sustainability theory, strategy in programme management theory and stakeholder management theory. The contemplated research seeks to formulate a new model or framework that defines programme management strategies for the delivering of major construction activities.
