Overview

This two-day course provides delegates with a thorough understanding of the five case model for creating Business Cases as mandated by HM Treasury. During the course we introduce the five cases and how they relate to the Government gateway reviews of spending and the three stages of development which culminates in the fully fledged Business Case. We also explain how these three stages are broken down into steps and actions. Throughout the course, our experts help delegates understand the benefits of adopting the five case model by use of examples from the real world.

All relevant course materials are provided.

The course includes the Better Business Cases Foundation Examination.

Better Business Cases Foundation Examination

Key exam information:

Throughout the Better Business Cases Foundation course, delegates will be exposed to numerous examples of examination questions. We will undertake a number of exercises and 'question-and-answer' sessions that will help to consolidate the learning, thereby ensuring that delegates are more than adequately prepared for the exam.

Prerequisites

No prerequisites are necessary for attendance, although delegates would benefit from some experience of creating business cases for large capital expenditure projects and an appreciation of financial terminology.

Pre-Course Reading

Delegates are provided with a copy of the Better Business Cases - Full Guidance document. This 152 page document is the basis for the course as well as the Foundation exam. Ideally delegates will have read this document but they must have read at least the first three chapters.

Delegates are also expected to have read and completed the exercise in the pre-reading.
