Generate Maximum Return
Effective leaders make investment decisions that allocate limited capital resources to achieve organizational goal, while minimizing risk. Great leaders stand out not because they have access to particularly rich information, but because they seek the most useful information and accurately evaluate both the risk and potential return.
Capital budgeting is a key strategic skillset that leaders must possess to ensure that capital resources are strategically implemented to generate maximum return. This course aims to equip business leaders with the terminology, skillset, and the strategic mindset required to navigate a complex business environment, evaluate competing investment options, execute budgeting decisions that achieve goals, and effectively communicate their decisions and impact.
