NavIncerta offers online courses that aim to teach professionals hands-on skills in the analysis of uncertainty and risk when preparing for investment decisions or strategy development. Click here to obtain a pdf brochure with a detailed description.
The courses are designed to be modular, self-paced, entertaining and practical, yet with depth. They consist of short videos, interactive lessons, quizzes, printable summaries, supplementary reading and include interaction with experienced teachers and Q&A discussions. The latter are an indispensable and valuable element of the offering.

Uncertainties and risks associated with project investment assumptions and complexity of the business environment cannot simply be accounted for in valuations by choosing a particular discount rate. The concepts discussed in the NavIncerta courses provide a broad array of practical methodologies which yield a holistic and meaningful perspective on the investment opportunity proposed for the decision maker. This involves the generation of quantified ranges of the decision metrics, the integration with risk management and the incorporation of uncertainty in the business environment through scenario thinking. Experience and intuition will also guide executives in making sound decisions, but this needs to be coupled to good analysis.
- Fundamentals of investment risk and uncertainty analysis
- Risk quantification
- Focused scenario analysis of the business environment
- Analytical probabilistic concepts for decision analysis (in development)
Each course allows 60 days access and includes regular 45 min. telephone conferences.
Other courses planned:
- Introduction to investment risk and uncertainty analysis (a simplified version of the Fundamentals course)
- Workshop Fundamentals: to put things into practice in a case study
You can take a look at a demo version of the course Fundamentals of investment risk and uncertainty analysis. Log in as ‘guest’.
Learning only really starts after completion of a course with putting the concepts into practice. We therefore also have alumni forums, one for each course. After completion of a course (including all assignments and the course evaluation), participants may enrol in an alumni forum at no additional cost. Here queries and examples from real life can be posted for discussion, collective learning and exchange of experiences. NavIncerta teachers participate in these forums too (on a best endeavour basis).
An excellent way to continue learning whilst on the job.
