Overview

Introduction

Every day you have to make decisions about how to spend your time, your effort and your organisation’s money. How you make those decisions determines whether your organisation succeeds or fails. At the heart of any sound decision is a business case that examines the options, gathers evidence and identifies the resources required and the benefits that might accrue.

A good business case is so much more than simply the means to justify a decision. A well-written and well-researched business case will secure funding; make sure any project stays on the right side of regulation; marshals support for the cause; provides the platform for managing the project and the benchmark against which to measure progress. If you want people to listen to your ideas, if you want to make good decisions, if you want to make things better in your organisation, then you’ll have to be able to present a clear and compelling business case. This three day workshop shows you how to make sense of the task at hand and build confidence in your ability to build a well-argued case that you can present and defend in an authoritative and influential way.

This workshop is also designed to enable delegates to raise their speaking skills and make a mark by taking charge of the platform and connecting effectively with the audience, improving their chances of success when presenting to persuade, and become masters, not slaves, of PowerPoint business cases!

Pre-Requisites

There are no pre-requisites.

Who should attend?

This three day workshop will benefit anyone responsible for driving change or new ideas forward in their business through influencing others to their cause. It is suitable for those who currently build business cases and who want to improve the quality of their output in terms of: credibility, argumentation, influence and presentation. It will be of particular benefit to busy managers who want to gain an overview or review of the whole process of developing a successful, compelling and influential business case and for those who want to raise their speaking skills.  

It will benefit those who are involved in high-level sales and who help their customers to ‘make the case’ to their bosses. People involved in project teams or product development teams who need to distinguish between operating/purchasing/development options will find the course valuable.  This course is as much about new thinking as about techniques. 

Delegates are encouraged to bring along a current business case or project they are working on to use as a ‘live’ tool during the workshop.

What will you learn?

  • Understand the whole process
  • Perform the research with all the tools to undertake an analysis
  • Develop a strategy, articulate your options, define the benefits, establish the costs, identify the risks… to make a compelling case
  • Construct and write an unbeatable, logical business case using words of influence
  • Master the skills to present as a compelling case, to inject interest in financial PowerPoint slides and to handle Q&A sessions masterfully
