Capital Allocation Strategies

Maximise value and optimise growth potential

The Capital Allocation Strategies course gives participants an understanding of how to allocate capital resources within a business, to maximise value and optimise growth potential. Using strategic and corporate finance frameworks, you will be equipped to drive strategies for growth, portfolio restructuring and performance improvements for your organisation.

Effective capital allocation strategies are a key issue for any business. They require the ability to understand the links between strategy, financial dimensions and organisational processes, such as remuneration, project valuation and performance measurement. This course equips you to understand these links, and provides a framework for developing growth, portfolio restructuring and performance improvement strategies.

With a focus on practical demonstration of tools and concepts, this course will provide you with tools and skills that can be applied in your workplace.
