Preparing a Business Case

Course description

There are three basic reasons for preparing a business case:

  • To clarify the thinking of the person proposing the case
  • To inform the decision-makers to enable them to make a decision on the proposal
  • To provide a framework for the project
All three of these purposes will be best served by taking a structured approach to the preparation of a business case.
