After the financial crisis of 2008, many governments around the world turned to the private sector to help finance and implement major public projects through Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs). While the main reason for governments to turn to PPPs was to reduce upfront costs, it soon became clear that successful PPPs also resulted in better infrastructure projects and improved government services. This has allowed governments to focus more on policy, planning, and regulation without having to worry about operations and implementation.
In this course, attendees will learn all about PPPs and the process and steps needed to establish a partnership that can benefit both the public and private sectors.
This course depends on the careful analysis of several cases from both developing and developed countries in different sectors including education, infrastructure, immigration and defense. In addition, group discussions and presentations will be used to demonstrate the necessary conditions for the success of PPPs as well as the reasons for their failure.
All managers and senior professionals who are involved in designing or developing public-private partnership plans as well as other executives who would like to develop an in-depth understanding of the benefits and risks of PPPs.
