About the course

As the various application areas and industries’ capital expenditures have been soared in recent years; capital project execution has become a hot topic in the organizations executive suites in both private and public sectors.

Data from global project benchmarking shows that 65% of the projects with budgets of more than multi-hundred million dollars failed to meet business objectives. Projects are encountering significant overrun in their schedules and budgets, and as a consequence fail to achieve the organization’s financial, operational and strategic objectives.

This is mainly due to the failure of many project managers to successfully handle the competing demands of their multi-objectives projects. Applying the knowledge, skills, tools and techniques to the project in competent way is the key success factor in project management.
