Capital investment decisions are made with a lot of uncertainty. To mitigate the risk of project failure, managers need to understand its exposure and implement appropriate management strategies.
This highly interactive and practical training course is designed to help businesses conduct a systematic and comprehensive evaluation of potential investment opportunities, assess their probability of success and drive the decisions to develop or abandon them. This involves development of sound, realistic, and carefully structured cash flow projections, thorough examination of the underlying assumptions and thoughtful consideration of potential future scenarios. Competent application of project analysis tools helps estimate expected returns, evaluate risk exposure and select appropriate risk mitigation strategies. This should result in improved decision making and increased effectiveness of investments.
This training course will highlight:
- The importance of thorough project definition and analysis
- The advantages, disadvantages and practical applications of various profitability models
- Core financial analysis principles and modern concepts of risk management
- Tools and techniques for making decisions under risk and uncertainty
- Application of decision trees, scenario and sensitivity analysis in risk mitigation and investment decisions
What are the Goals?
By the end of this training course, participants will be able to:
- Make or recommend investment decisions and compellingly present them to the stakeholders
- Appraise project risk, identify and manage risk mitigation strategies
- Apply robust cash-flow, scenario and sensitivity analysis techniques to evaluate potential future conditions and select effective investment strategies
- Define and manage project success factors and maximize the return on invested capital
- Critically evaluate investment decisions and financial risk mitigation strategies
