Why Choose this Training Course?
This PetroKnowledge Training Course on Evaluating Collaborative Development Opportunities is concerned with one of the most important activities in the development of business – critical analysis and evaluation of potential investors and partners. All businesses are becoming more complex in structure, technology, competition and strategic choice. Consequently, a company’s relationships with potential investors and partners now require a significantly higher standard of appraisal and focus than has been the case in the past.
This high-level 5-day PetroKnowledge training course will concentrate on the application of leading-edge tools and techniques of due diligence in evaluating opportunities for creating effective relationships with these two strategically significant stakeholder categories.
Due diligence is multi-dimensional. It is based on an understanding of needs and objectives of potential investors and partners; their decision criteria; their compatibility with the strategic and operational objectives of our own company; and finally, it requires a structured process by which attraction and integration of new investors and partners can be accomplished effectively in order to sustain continuous improvement in the profitable growth of the company.
