APMG-International Better Business Cases™ Foundation virtual

Our virtual courses give you all the benefits and interactivity of classroom learning, but from the comfort of your own home.

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

The purpose of the Foundation qualification is to confirm that a candidate has 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.

What is virtual classroom training?

ILX’s virtual instructor-led training combines the personal teaching experience of a classroom, with the ease and flexibility of a virtual environment. Our virtual courses are interactive and engaging, allowing participants to communicate with both the instructor and each other in a collaborative manner.
