General Information

Length and Learning Modes: 1 day
Overview:

Project professionals often find themselves developing business cases for the performing organization. When asked to do so, it is critical to create a solid business case. All too often, project teams are asked to implement a solution before the underlying problem is known or assessed. An essential ingredient to successful projects is a clear and relevant business case. It provides both insights into and a proposed solution for important business needs. Strong business cases contain feasible and effective ways of justifying and recommending projects that squarely address business needs, both problems and opportunities. Through this course, you will learn a repeatable process that starts with identifying business needs and ends with a strong business case. You will learn and practice applying each step in a 5-part approach to developing business cases.
