INTRODUCTION

With increasing competition and focus on corporate earnings, project and contract managers are held accountable, not just for achieving technical and scheduling goals, but also for meeting profitability targets and other cost related measures.

This training session explores the financial metrics that are commonly used and also examines the less frequently thought of financial impact of typical operating decisions and actions. Building on your competencies, you will examine the inner mechanics of how finance and accounting can impact your project.

PROGRAMME OBJECTIVES

  • Communicate more effectively with accounting and financial personnel
  • Read, understand, and analyse accounting and financial data
  • Expand your work in project scheduling and cost control to encompass additional financial metrics and tools
  • Minimise project financial risk
  • Develop and apply tools for comparing project financial returns
  • Understand how finance often drives organisational decisions and evaluations of project performance.

PROGRAMME SUMMARY

Learn about common financial analysis tools in the project environment that link project management to broader corporate strategic goals.  Case studies and project-related exercises give you the opportunity to apply these proven tools and techniques.

Learn how the financial health of your organisation can be significantly affected by operating decisions regarding pricing as well as terms and conditions and asset management.
