About the course

As a finance manager you are familiar with creating budgets, forecasts and monitoring against a budget. But do you have what it takes to take on the financial management of a project?

This course provides an overview of the role and responsibilities of a project finance team throughout the different stages of planning and implementing a project. It explores how you anticipate and prevent problems that may arise during the course of a project, and result in overruns and helps you recognise time delays that could prove costly.

It looks at a range of techniques that are useful to the project finance team throughout the different stages of a project. You will end up with a set of tools you will need to review, revise and update financial models, anticipate revised outcomes and report to management.
