Who is it for?

This course would benefit anyone involved in projects or capital expenditure proposals regardless of how long they’ve been doing it for. As with all of our courses, the level that this is aimed at can be adapted to suit the needs of the course participants.

The course raised my awareness significantly and provided me with the tools to evaluate the financial strength of our suppliers and clients.

01 Content Overview

The people involved in creating proposals to spend in a particular area are usually experts in their field, but often haven’t had any training to support their analysis of whether their proposal really is the best idea. Given that projects and capital expenditures often consume a significant part of the finances of the organisation, it is imperative that those involved in them can make high quality objective decisions about which proposals are likely to have the best results, financially and non-financially.  This can help prioritise where large expenditures are made.

This course covers the financial evaluation techniques that are a critical part of this decision making process and considers the costing elements of projects/capex expenditures as well as the financial impact of risks relating to them.  Participants will leave this course with their own personal action plan detailing how they will implement their ideas to ensure that their organisation can reap the financial benefits of their new knowledge.

We would be delighted to tailor this course to your organisation and the specific objectives of the course participants – contact us for more details!
