Better Business Cases™ is a structured and strategic approach used to delineate the justification of a case for initiating a business project or programme. Centred around the development of a comprehensive project implementation plan, a Business Case justifies the market access and business value that a project can offer.
Better Business Cases™ is a structured, systematic, and strategic approach to developing comprehensive business cases. The approach is fundamentally underpinned by the HM Treasury’s Green Book Guidance, specially the Five Case Model, which guides the development of spending proposals and helps to establish a justified requirement for business changes or interventions.
During the development of a business case, calculating the exact value of a business change is crucial - this will often determine whether or not investment is granted and whether the project “gets the go ahead”. Hence, our Better Business Cases™ courses enable candidates to fully appreciate the constituents of valuable business cases, to ensure resources are used conservatively and with the business’s best interests as a central foci of all operations.
Balancing costs, benefits, and risks forms an integral part of the development of a business case, as investors and Senior Responsible Owners must be presented with a persuasive report supported by statistics, if the case is to be approved. Hence, individuals undertaking our Better Business Cases™ training courses will learn how to develop and deliver a strategic proposal, to ensure investment, return on investment, and elevate overall business value.
Businesses adopting the guidance within the Green Book and the Five Case Model, can expect an improvement to decision making, justified spending, and business value, and a decrease in erroneous expenditure - demonstrating the value of undertaking Business Case training courses.
