Innovate or die!  Nokia and Kodak are both recent examples of once great companies that failed to heed this dire warning. New technologies are at the core of disruptive business models and the company’s ability to innovate critically depends on its ability to bring forward, evaluate and develop new processes and technologies. This has put unprecedented demands on engineers, project, and technical managers to not just understand the principles of project finance but also to be able to communicate and apply them effectively.

This hands-on project finance training course will focus on practical financial skills directly relevant for understanding, planning, and presenting persuasive project evaluations for investment decision-making.
