Business Case Creation & Evaluation Course
Who this course is for
There may be many roles within an organisation involved at any stage of the process of creating and/or evaluating business cases – that’s why our course can be adapted to suit the participants’ experience and related to the type and size of the business cases they are involved in.
Our business case creation and evaluation course aims to address all appropriate factors and consequences in order to realise a positive business case evaluation and covers the business case process and how it must be evaluated, both financially and commercially.
Course cost varies depending on requirements. Training is delivered at your office or your chosen location.
Duration is typically 1-2 days depending on chosen topics.
A thorough business case is essential for making the best decisions on large expenditures, regardless of whether it is related to a project, a capital expenditure, an investment or anything else.
This course covers all of the necessary areas to ensure that participants are able to effectively produce and evaluate an effective and viable business plan. At the end of the course, participants will be asked to create a personal action plan which they can use following our business case evaluation course to help them to turn their ideas from the course into reality.
A comprehensive business case evaluation should cover a number of key areas to ensure there is sufficient information available to objectively assess its worth to the organisation. Employees involved in either creating and/or assessing business cases for large investments need to be able to understand what should be included, compare one business case with another and make decisions on which option is going to create the most value to the organisation both financially and non-financially.
As with all our financial training courses, we can tailor this business case creation and evaluation course to your organisation and the specific objectives of your employees. We understand there are many different roles which require the skills of making business case evaluations and can also incorporate other aspects of finance not mentioned below – please contact us to discuss your exact requirements.
