Finance and Procurement Management in Amman, Jordan

About this event

Program Overview

Financial Management is a key to your organizational sustainability, encompassing all activities which have a financial impact. It provides direction, determines and clarifies accountability, evaluates resources and delivers information that can be used in planning, assessing impact and reporting. It also allows your organization to identify legal obligations through implementing good practice in accounting for finances. The role of financial managers today goes far beyond handling a multitude of daily transactions. You must also help drive company performance by sharing valuable information hidden in transactional data and adapting processes fluidly as business conditions and regulatory environments change.

In today’s increasingly complex business environment, project professionals need to be knowledgeable in all phases of the project life cycle, from the early phase of acquisition to the last phase of product delivery to the client. Among them, Project Procurement and acquisitions professionals must keep many things in mind, including contractual issues between the buyer and seller or between the developer and client or consultant. Contracting officers, Purchasing Managers, and Subcontractors are often among the players who play a vital role in achieving the overall project success.
