Building Better Business Cases
Continuous downward pressure on resources in the public sector within the context of increasing demand for public services continues to challenge public sector organisations as they make important choices about where to invest their limited funds. In this environment, the importance of robust and relevant business cases to aide decision-taking has never been more important. This course will provide an introduction to the development of business cases and the key things to look out for when reviewing and challenging business cases.
We will explore the key elements of the five case model, based upon the HM Treasure Green book Guidance on Public Sector Business Cases
The course is aimed at managers/officers with limited previous experience of business case development, who are expected to be involved in the development, scrutiny and/or review of business cases in the future.
Delegates will leave the event with a better understanding of the key elements of the 5 case model and the lifecycle of business cases, and how they can use this knowledge to improve the quality and robustness of business cases in their areas.
