Constructing a Project Business Case

Duration: Half Day (Morning/Afternoon Sessions)

 Price: TBA per delegate (excluding VAT)


Course Overview:

The driving force behind every project should be its Business Case.

As the Business Case is, therefore, such an important element of project work, this workshop equips delegates with knowledge of Business Case concepts, and prepares them to construct a complete and accurate Business Case for their projects. It will also familiarise them with evaluation techniques and draws their attention to potential problem areas.
