Business Management & Economics Training Course

Understanding financial and managerial aspects of the chemical industry

This three-day course was designed for industry professionals who are involved in the financial and strategic aspects of the petrochemical industry.  This course looks at cost of production, financial evaluation and the understanding of the value chain beyond our products, into the world of the converters, brand owners and retailers.  We also take a good look at the competition.  Attendees to this course are typically working in areas such as finance, planning and business development.

Examples of attendees include people in R&D who understand the chemistry very well but who need help to bring the products to market, or professionals who are moving from technical roles to managerial responsibilities. The Business Management course can also provide a good complement to the Global Petrochemical Industry training.

Topics covered:

  • The external environment – How the macroeconomic and the energy environment affect the chemical industry
  • Competitiveness – How companies compete based on their feedstock position, their scale, geography and level of integration
  • The value chain – How industry players are influenced by what happens along the value chain, from the feedstock’s to the converters and retailers
  • Project evaluation and feasibility – considerations when planning new projects and understanding financial modelling
  • Strategy and competition – Strategic planning in a competitive environment
