Study Processes for Resource Projects examines the role of the different contributors to ensure technical discipline and that risk is managed to prepare successful business cases.
In creating a consistent roadmap for preparing and evaluating Projects, the course provides a framework for ensuring the right tasks are pursued at the right time, and the steps needed to present information in a compelling way.
The course will provide participants the tools they need to inform decision making to advance studies at key project milestones and support evaluation. The course shares the stages in a project development study process – from scoping through to front-end engineering and design. By following a structured process, course participants can ensure a standardised approach that can be applied across resource projects.
