Who stood out in Construction Week's 2018 Power 100 list, and how does the process that aims to capture and quantify influence actually work?

This will be revealed in the latest episode of Construction Week Viewpoint, which also puts forward another question: what does the 2018 Power 100 list say about the state of the Middle East's construction market?

CW editor Oscar Rousseau and CWO editor Jumana Abdel-Razzaq say tough decisions had to be made to determine this year's list of the most influential people. They also provide some insight into how the process to select and rank the GCC's business leaders worked.

This system is based on a complex combination of factors, including hard business fact, such as revenue and project pipeline, as well as soft power. It looks at the 12-month performance of the individual business leader, exploring how this person has driven the business forward. While backlog and balance sheets are an important factor, the list also measure something harder to capture, and that is an undeniable industry influence.

Construction Week Viewpoint is a weekly SoundCloud podcast series produced by the Construction Week editorial team.

Listeners can tune in from their handheld devices at noon every Monday to learn more about the biggest issues in the business. Previous episodes have explored why Saudi Arabia is in a race against time to build more hospitals, why saving the UAE's architectural heritage is more important that ever before, and how oil and gas megaprojects continue to be developed amid widespread energy diversification plans.

A video of each podcast can be found on Construction Week's YouTube account.
