Project Finance and Investment Appraisal
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.
I now have a better understanding of the impact of setting a business strategy.
I have a much better understanding of Greene King’s finances.
The course raised my awareness significantly and provided me with the tools to evaluate the financial strength of our suppliers and clients.
The practical nature of this course was extremely helpful and incredibly well focused to our needs, engaging me from beginning to end.
Practical examples ensured that all delegates were involved in the learning process.
People like what they are seeing. We can look within the business and see that the financial and commercial acumen has improved.
Excellent – I’m amazed by how much I’ve learnt about the accounts and how they can be used in decision making.
Collaborative, engaging, informative, team driven, extremely valuable and a great link between finance and operations.
I am getting more involved with the financial elements of projects and this has given me far more confidence in that respect. The trainer was very open and approachable.
The Trainers understand our business and needs so well that it is like they are part of our team rather than external Trainers.
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!
