From the Back Cover:

Praise For Investment Project Design

"The subtitle of this comprehensive guide could be 'How to Avoid White Elephants'. It is a complete guide for how to develop a proposal for a successful project including case studies and detailed notes and references to additional information."―Robert Youker, instructor (retired), World Bank Institute

"This book is a comprehensive treatise on most aspects of project design, analysis, and implementation. Using numeric formulations to explain basic concepts is its unique feature. And as a teacher of 'project finance,' I find the bullet point format, which can easily be transformed into a slide presentation format, a very interesting approach."―Gopi N. Puri, former senior technical manager, International Finance Corporation, World Bank; retired project finance teacher; freelance consultant

"Limited investment resources constitute the key issue in development. Unfortunately, history has shown that a considerable part of them is wasted; one of the reasons is faulty design of individual projects. This book sets out to correct all the common mistakes, and it succeeds admirably. This concise and thorough guide is the best treatment of the subject available today―both beginners and experienced practitioners will profit especially from case studies drawn from the authors' long careers in the field."―Kazimierz Laski, Emeritus Professor of Economics, Johannes Kepler University of Linz

Your road map to a successful project plan―and a sound investment decision

Investment Project Design charts a path for navigating through the hazardous road to success faced by private and public investors and their collaborators in formulating and deciding whether or not to go ahead with their investment projects. The expert authors alert investors and other stakeholders to precipitous changes in the investment milieu as a result of resource constraints (mainly fossil energy), political turmoil (such as international terrorism), and demographic change, and provide guidelines for designing their projects accordingly, taking into account uncertainties and risks in the business environment.

From the Inside Flap:

Accumulating and deploying capital assets to provide future benefits is a practice that dates back thousands of years. Yet, even today, how capital resources are applied--decisions about when, where, and how they should be committed--presents its challenges and does not always produce expected results. Aside from uncontrollable external factors such as political and economic upheavals, one of the main deficiencies in project planning is that there is usually not enough of it, with decisions often based on anything from intuition to inadequate analysis. In Investment Project Design, internationally known experts Lech Kurowski and David Sussman offer a complete guide for investors and other stakeholders in methods of successfully designing and appraising investment projects in private and public sectors.

They present a comprehensive framework of analysis for any project involving capital investment--one that clears up a number of important misconceptions about financial aspects of design and appraisal, and that aligns the project more compatibly with features of its operating environment. Through this holistic view of the business environment, the investment project becomes part of the economic, social, and ecological system within which it is intended to function and prosper.

The approaches that the authors provide for designing, analyzing, and appraising the project will increase confidence in the investment decision despite the minefield of the contemporary investment environment--and vastly improve chances for a successful outcome.
