As agribusiness is growing through many different initiatives, it’s important to decide where and when to make investments. Having a well-shaped portfolio management capability is crucial to ensure the right investments are made by applying structured and standardized go/no-go decisions to new and current initiatives. Accenture provides services in helping clients plan and manage their investment project portfolio, and to build their portfolio management capability.
Capital Investment Management
Asset-intensive companies such as agribusinesses need to build and operate production facilities and assets reliably, safely, and cost-effectively. In recent years, this has become increasingly difficult due to issues such as aging assets, workforce trends, the complexity of capital projects and increasingly rigorous environmental, health and safety standards.
Accenture provides agribusiness with a comprehensive capability for new plant strategy, permitting, engineering, procurement and construction. For operating facilities Accenture offers services to help reduce operating costs, improve asset reliability and optimize production performance.
