Constructing Compelling Business Cases for Projects
A one-day workshop focusing on the content and structure of good business cases for projects

Workshop information

A business case is the primary vehicle for getting approval to carrying out a change initiative or project. It needs to demonstrate a viable balance between cost, benefits and risks as well as describing options and approach. Creating an effective business case is a challenging task often needing specific skills that managers may only use infrequently.

This practical workshop is designed to provide a structured approach to creating good business cases, together with an understanding of some of the difficult issues that will have to be addressed.

A core of this workshop will be group work on a practical simulation of a business case, with delegates progressively developing a business case during the day.

I thought the session was pitched really well, with enough ideas for us to discuss but also some to look into following the session. I found the menaces and ideas for communication particularly useful, and will be able to adapt the strategies to use in my work.
