Sound investment decision–making in the public and private sectors is key to ensuring the sustainable health & growth of the economy. In this Project Risk Analysis & Management training seminar, you will acquire knowledge & tools to conduct financial and economic project appraisal.
If an important capital project does not achieve the financial and economic goals of the promoter organisation, it can result in financial losses, waste of resources and impacts across wider reputational spheres. The goal of this training course is to avoid such situations by giving participants the tools and techniques of modern economic and financial project appraisal.
This training seminar will highlight:
- The importance of careful risk assessment in the project planning and appraisal phase
- Modern concepts of risk assessment
- The advantages, disadvantages and practical applications of various risk management tools
- The increasingly important role of Public-Private Partnership (PPP) as a risk controlling solution for delivering successful projects
This interactive and practical Project Risk Analysis & Management training seminar will provide an insight into how procurement organisations can meet the challenge to pick and deliver the best projects against a context of limited resources.
It will take you through the key stages of project risk assessment, and provide guidance on risk management tools to improve project outcomes.
This training seminar will focus on the principal risk factors and other key issues that need to be considered in managing the planning of major, long-term, high-value projects.
This Project Risk Analysis & Management training seminar will conclude with an in-depth review of the most widely used mechanism for major projects, the Public-Private Partnership (PPP) contract; identifying, assessing and allocating the principal issues in adopting a PPP model.
By the end of this training seminar, participants will be able to:
