Going over budget is one of the key reasons big projects fail. In this course you’ll understand typical investor and project financing approaches in major projects so that you are in a better position to successfully manage them. By taking this course, you’ll learn to interpret some key contractual instruments that are relevant for the financing of major engineering projects such as concessions and Special Purpose Vehicles (SPVs) so that you are in a position to ensure the financially secure delivery of your project. You’ ll learn about the concept of “time value of money” and be able to compute key indicators such as “Pay-back time”, “Net Present value” and “Internal Rate of Return”. Through identifying common stakeholder and management approaches, you will be in a better position to implement key messaging, taking accurate requirements and manage expectations. Through real-life case studies you’ll identify appropriate best practice related to governance, execution strategies, requirements management, procurement, asset and risk management and organisational design and development for the successful delivery of large engineering projects. This is the third course in the Managing Major Engineering Projects Specialization. The specialization is the first step towards earning degree credit from the University of Leeds. Learners who successfully complete the specialization will be able to apply to the enhanced, for-credit Capstone project which will run as a private course on Coursera. Credit earned by successfully completing the Capstone project can be used directly as evidence of accredited postgraduate study....

О специализации ''Managing Major Engineering Projects'

Major engineering projects can positively affect the lives of many people and have long-lasting impact on the economy. They are also characterized by vast complexity and carry risks such as running over schedule, coming in over budget and failing to deliver expected benefits. If you are an engineer or a project manager and you aspire to get involved with these life changing projects, or you are already working on one, you will need to acquire the project management skills that ensure their successful delivery. Throughout our three courses, you will be exposed to best practices for planning and delivering major engineering projects and gain a deep understanding of project management which will prepare you to deliver these projects and progress your career into this area. This Specialization is the first step towards earning degree credit from the University of Leeds. After you successfully complete the three Specialization courses, you will be able to apply to the enhanced, for-credit Capstone project which will run as a private course on Coursera. The Capstone project will allow you to develop your skills further through practical research supported by a dedicated instructor in global classroom sessions. Credit earned by successfully completing the Capstone project can be used as evidence of accredited postgraduate study. This specialization is accredited through a professional qualification from CMI....
