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.

Currently, 25% of all classes are delivered through LiveOnline, so if you can’t make it to our London, Euston location for any reason, this option is the ideal solution for you. You’ll also be happy to note that the pass marks are the same for both classroom and LiveOnline delegates.

To ensure you have enough time to familiarise yourself with the text you'll be studying, we send out any manuals and course reading materials to you around 3-5 weeks before your course commences. You’ll also gain access to the trainer for one hour (available after course, via phone or skype).

Each of our classers are equipped with high technology to be able to successfully deliver courses through LiveOnline, including:

  •    Wide screen cameras – Delivering clear visibility of both the class and the trainer
  •    Projector and whiteboard – Materials are projected onto a full white wall
  •    Latest annotation hardware and software – Providing greater visibility for your LiveOnline screen
  •    Electronic Mat – Each trainer has access to an electronic mat, which when stood on and off switches camera angles between their face and the whiteboard, helping to provide a better visible learning experience
  •    Microphones - All trainers have a microphone so the whole class (and especially the LiveOnline learners) can better hear the trainers loud and clear. LiveOnline delegates will require a microphone headset. Classroom attendees will have access to a microphone (one per desk of two delegates) and speaker system. When questions arise, everyone can both speak and hear clearly

Softskills courses which require breakout sessions in small groups, also involve the LiveOnline delegate, through a shared screen and camera, with full visibility and microphone access. This ensures each delegate (both in the classroom and external locations via LiveOnline) has the opportunity to be involved in the interactive lessons.  

If LiveOnline delegates experience any technical difficulties or questions, there is a fully managed control centre, who will assist each delegate. Response times sit at 45 seconds and each session is constantly monitored by a technical team.

Prices include all training, manuals, pre-course reading material, exams and 1 hour one-one access to the trainer).
