Gatekeeping for Capital Project Governance

Download brochure

A stage-gate process is a key element of capital investment decision-making, but weak gates undermine the objective. How effective is your process?

Course Description

The stage-gate process has the dual role of being a method for shaping business opportunity into a capital project that maximizes return-on-investment and a tool for corporate governance of capital investment. Yet the stage-gate processes of many companies do not function effectively, often due to the following:

  • Lack of understanding of how the stage-gate process improves capital investment decision-making
  • Investment analysis based on information that is biased or does not incorporate the true range of risk
  • Weak gates that allow projects to proceed with marginal business justification or poor quality stage-gate deliverables

This virtual training course provides participants with a set of gatekeeping practices and tools that help improve project effectiveness, as identified through IPA research. Participants will learn why these practices are important and how to implement them effectively in capital projects.
