Abstract: The paper presents the recent tendencies in methods and techniques used in investment project evaluation. The purpose of the paper is to highlight the problems encountered and the appropriate solutions developed in investment project evaluation so far.Many important projects in Romania have been evaluated using Cost-Benefit Analysis. Unfortunately, this method led to unrealistic results regarding the projects’ success. Therefore, the Cost-Benefit Analysis developed in the pre-implementation period of the projects revealed that the projects would be successful in accomplishing their main objectives. However, an important part of this results did not fit the reality and many projects were not sustainable after their implementation. Consequently, we proposed to expose the adjustments that should be made in evaluation methods and techniques, in order to obtain more realistic results regarding the success of the future investment projects.
