What is the Building an Effective Business Case course?

This course has been developed to help you learn and understand the importance of carefully analysing, creating, and communicating a successful business case, to better maximise the chance of having it approved.

Throughout this business analysis training course, you’ll acquire the knowledge and skills required to define design evaluation criteria, weigh up costs against benefits and communicate a comprehensive business case, with the goal of improving decision making.

To get the best results, learning should be focused on two elements: practical training and experiential learning. This has been shown to be more effective than just a lecture would be on its own. Throughout this course, delegates will participate in a two-day simulation, where they will create a business case from beginning to completion.
