Portfolio Financials: manage projects like Warren Buffett

April 19, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm BST


Companies are expected to increase their market value, over time. They do so by allocating resources to select operations and projects, generating returns above the cost of capital. Projects are undertaken to take advantage of opportunities, or deal with threats. They are steps into the unknown.

Each project cannot have a positive return, but the portfolio of a company must have a positive return. The projects undertaken to deal with threats cannot generate positive returns, however they should reduce the overall riskiness of the portfolio. Some projects fail and have to be written off as sunk costs.

This event will provide an example of how to implement Project Portfolio Management (PPM) as an ongoing business process, based on investment management practices, in order to help managers better manage their company strategy, and extract a higher yield from their projects.

Who should attend?
