Capital Expenditure Planning

Capital Allocation is a senior management team’s most fundamental responsibility. The objective of capital allocation is to build long-term value. Executives create long-term value for their companies by investing capital (CapEx) in projects that generate future cash flows at rates to return that exceed the enterprise’s cost of capital. 

The “New Normal” of the COVID-19 pandemic has created huge challenges for managing your company’s capital project portfolio, including:

  • High Levels of Uncertainty have raised the stakes for optimizing capital allocation decisions.
  • Limitations of Existing Tools & Methodologies can lead to sub-optimal capital allocation decisions that destroy shareholder value.
  • Agility & Flexibility in project design and execution have become mission critical to unlock value during the project’s entire lifecycle.
