Trainer Bio


In this course we evaluate important elements of the business case, key cash flow concepts and focus on their applicability to business and to the overall financial bottom line.

Project professionals certainly don’t need to be Certified Public Accountants (CPAs) or financial experts to be effective in their roles, but must be proficient with certain fundamental business concepts that can be applied directly to their projects. Having a solid grasp of these important concepts can greatly assist project teams in achieving optimized and sustained business value for their organizations.

Cash flow modeling is one of the most important activities in building effective business cases and in determining the actual amounts of cash that will be expended, saved or generated as a result of project implementations. Cash flow models are constructed by synthesizing all of the information that was gathered during the interviews, focus groups and various other research efforts and then using that information to create a series of projected cash flows over a period of time, typically the useful life of a project.

As project professionals, we must not be intimidated by the numbers, but must understand and embrace them to accurately represent and manage our project investments.
