COURSE INFORMATION

OVERVIEW

  • Better Business Cases Foundation Online

    Better Business Cases™ Foundation Online training is a systematic and objective approach to all stages of the business case development process that sits alongside and complements the HM Treasury’s Green Book guidance.

    The online course and examination are based on The Five Case Model, the UK government’s best practice approach to planning spending proposals and enabling effective business decisions. This provides a step-by-step guide to developing a business case, by:

    • Establishing a clear need for intervention - a case for change.
    • Setting clear objectives - what you want to achieve from the investment.
    • Considering a wide range of potential solutions - ensuring an optimal balance of benefits, cost and risk.
    • Putting the arrangements in place to successfully deliver the proposal.

    The following pre-course reading will be e-mailed to you as a PDF document. Please ensure you have the right software available to read/extract a PDF file. The pre-course reading takes approximately 8- 10 hours to perform and consists of the following:

    1) Better Business Case®  Workbook Pre-course study
    2) Green Book Guidance On Public Sector Business Cases Using The Five Case Model

    In addition, delegates will be required to complete a MINIMUM of 1 hour of homework each evening.
