Course overview

About the course

Many projects commence with an optimistic business case which is often poorly written. This results in organisations spending money that may well not give them the return they expect or want. Nowadays, the focus is increasingly on showing value for money.

The purpose of the Foundation qualification is to confirm that you have sufficient knowledge and understanding of the guidance to be able to work effectively with, or as a member of, a team to develop a business case using the Five Case Model. The Foundation qualification is also a pre-requisite for the Practitioner qualification.

Duration

This course will take approximately 10-12 hours to complete.

By the end of this learning you should understand the structure and key terminology of the model. Specifically:

  • The philosophy and underlying rationale of the Five Case Model
  • The different types of business case, their purpose, who is responsible for them and when they are required in the development of a spending proposal
  • The development of the business case in relation to other recognized and recommended best practice for programme and project management
