This 2-day practical workshop training in developing powerful business cases will go over the process of how a business case is developed, explaining how to analyze benefits and costs, and put together each and every component that goes into the document.
A business case is a justification for a business project. It requests funding for a project internally from an organization’s financial decision-makers or externally from investors.
A business case compares the costs of a project with the benefits that it provides. It must show that the benefits outweigh the costs. In many instances, it must include a financial analysis that calculates the project’s return on investment (ROI).
Although financial information is important, a business case is more than a financial justification for a project. It is a business justification. The business case should show that the project will help the organization meet its goals. In this workshop, we will also be expanding on the key terms and concepts that commonly appear in business cases so that delegates understand and appreciate the value of such information. Finally, we will go over the process of compiling and preparing a convincing presentation so that we can be sure that the business case will be approved. This is a workshop based course that will allow delegates to apply what they learn immediately in the class by working in groups to develop and present a powerful business case of their choice. Participation will be required. Students are welcome to bring with them a sample business case that they will like to work on as their case study.
