APMG-International Better Business Cases™ Practitioner Classroom

Many projects commence with an optimistic business case which is often poorly written, resulting 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. Understanding the proven tools and techniques to make a stronger and more robust business case is a critical part of organisational and project success.

Better Business Cases™ is a systematic and objective approach to all stages of the business case development process that sits alongside, and complements, HM Treasury’s Green Book guidance.

Course overview

About the course

The course and examination are based on The Five Case Model, the UK government’s best practice approach to planning spending proposals and enabling effective business decisions. This provides a step by step guide to developing a business case, by:

  • Establishing a clear need for intervention - a case for change
  • Setting clear objectives - what you want to achieve from the investment
  • Considering a wide range of potential solutions - ensuring an optimal balance of benefits, cost and risk
  • Putting the arrangements in place to successfully deliver the proposal

This is a three-day course leading to the APMG-International Better Business Cases Practitioner examination, which is scheduled to take place on the final day.

The purpose of the Practitioner qualification is to confirm whether the candidate has achieved sufficient understanding of the theory and application of the Five Case Model to allow them to effectively develop and produce a business case. A successful Practitioner candidate should be able to start applying the model to a real project. In order to sit the Practitioner qualification you must have passed the Foundation qualification.

Duration

Three days

By the end of this Practitioner course you should be able to apply and understand how to tailor the Five Case Model effectively to the development of a business case within an organisation environment supporting the approach. Specifically:

  • Understand the development lifecycle of a business case and the relationships between the five cases
  • Be able to apply the steps in the business case development framework, in order to support the production of a business case, using the Five Case Model, for a given scenario
