    Course Overview

    With a high public profile, as well as strong political interest, Infrastructure programmes face a lot of scrutiny. The role of commercial manager is essential in securing a successful, on-time and on-budget delivery. This has resulted in an increased demand for commercial managers who are able to secure investment returns on infrastructure programmes. As such, it is vital to have the specific skills required to deliver value for money outcomes. 

    Our course covers the essential skills for commercial managers in infrastructure. Upon completion, you will have the practical knowledge required to successfully manage the commercial activity on an Infrastructure Programme whether it be road, rail, energy or telecommunications.

    Through initially setting the scene of the infrastructure industry, this course demonstrates best practice for a Commercial Manager.

    From managing your main stakeholders and understanding their drivers and motivations, to administrating the process of cost planning and benchmarking, risk, supply chains and procurement processes, this course delivers the fundamental skills required for best practice commercial delivery on an infrastructure programme, by working through a diverse range of case studies and reading materials.
