Description

Delivering a well thought through business case is crucial if you are going to have any chance of having that case approved. On too many occasions people submit subpar business cases which are either too long, too short, too complex or too vague. Creating a business case that strikes the right balance is a fine art, and this course will show you the steps you need to follow to do just that.

In this course, you will learn:

- How to pull together an effective business case.

- The key process steps you need to complete.

- Key things to look out for when creating your case.

- Hints and tips on how to increase your chances of approval.

This course is about delivering concise, to the point and effective business cases that attract and keep the readers attention, tell a story and include the right amount of detail. The method followed in this course has been tried and tested by myself, your instructor, plus many other people in business, on numerous occasions, all with the outcome of having the business case in question approved.

In the past year I have submitted 30 business cases in my current organisation, and ALL have been approved first time due to the fact that they have followed this model. These business cases have ranged from small improvement projects to large, transformation projects requiring new hiring, new software installations and structural organisational change. The model works for any size of project!

Simple and effective. I started building my case as I watched and what do you know - it got approved first time. So the approach does work :)
