An Intensive 5-day Training Course
Financial Management for Project Development
- Format: Classroom
- Duration: 5 days
- Language: English
- Accredited: CPE, KHDA Certified training courses
The development of new capital projects requires critical decisions to be made using the appropriate decision-making tools and techniques required to analyse prospective projects under conditions of risk and uncertainty. This enables organisations to assess the probability of success, and to decide on whether to continue to develop or abandon a project.
Of critical importance is the systematic and comprehensive evaluation of potential capital project investments, and the development of detailed cash flow analyses to determine as accurately as possible the expected returns to the organisation under varying conditions over the expected economic life of projects. This requires the development of sound, realistic, and carefully structured cash flow projections that reflect both the initial project capital expenditure and the operating cash flows required for successful operation and maintenance of projects over their anticipated economic term.
Globally, many large capital projects frequently overrun or fail to meet their plans, and do not realise both the financial and strategic goals of the organisation, resulting in under-utilised increases in capital funding and operational expenditure, and substantial financial losses to the organisation. This is the inevitable consequence of failing to appropriately apply the tools and techniques of financial management: project evaluation and decision-making, financial planning, capital funding management and cash flow analysis, when considering the development of new capital projects.
This EuroMaTech training course will highlight:
- The decision-making process
- Appropriate project planning and financing
- Financial decision-making tools
- The importance of project risk management
- Identification of, and appropriate responses to risk during project development
By the end of this EuroMaTech training course participants will have learned to:
- Manage the investments in and financing of capital-intensive projects
- Evaluate and make financial decisions and be able to present these to stakeholders
- Determine project cash flows and evaluate their risk
- Analyse cash flow and sensitivity factors
- Define and manage project success factors and maximise the project returns on capital
- Identify financial strategies and project risk mitigation strategies
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
This EuroMaTech Financial Management For Project Development training course is designed for project management and finance professionals, project leaders, project engineers, cost engineers, and other senior project control and business services professionals who are responsible for or involved in evaluating projects and managing cash flow throughout the duration of project development.
Attendees will develop project development evaluation skills supported by financial analysis and cash flow management skills through formal and interactive learning methods. This EuroMaTech programme includes numerous examples, team exercises and case studies, and group discussions that will put into practice the skills acquired throughout the course.
This Financial Management for Project Development training course material has been designed to enable attendees to apply their learning in the workplace, and does not assume prior knowledge of the topics covered during the course. New concepts and tools are introduced gradually to enable delegates to seamlessly progress from the fundamentals to the more advanced concepts.
Application of sound project appraisal and quantitative techniques enables organisations to forecast and evaluate with regard to possible future conditions that might jeopardise the chances of project success. The aim is to maximise the organisation's return on capital invested in projects.
Attendees will enhance their understanding of the importance of cash flow and the time value of money, and enhance their project development selection through the application of appropriate DCF appraisal tools such as net present value (NPV) and internal rate of return (IRR).
