Business Cases That Work

One day live virtual class.

Preparing an effective and compelling business case can be the single most important activity that sets you on the path to success. Bypassing this essential activity because it is assumed to be too difficult or unnecessary is a both ill-advised and unfounded. A project authorized and proceeded without a foundational understanding of its objectives, the required solution(s), benefits and risks can be extremely costly. Equally, a weak business case that does not effectively communicate the value of the investment also does not serve the interests of the business. Knowing how to write a compelling business case that will result in approval and the right portfolio mix is an invaluable skill.

This course provides the essential elements of effective business cases, techniques to elicit and communicate them, and a quick and efficient process that can be adapted to small and complex, structured and agile initiatives alike.
