Better Business Cases Foundation Online with Exam Guarantee

Overview

Our fully-accredited Better Business Cases Foundation e-learning allows you to learn at a pace that suits you, at home or on the go.

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.

TARGET AUDIENCE

The course is relevant to those responsible for developing and producing spending proposals or their assessment and approval; in particular:

  • Senior Responsible Owners (SROs), Programme Directors, EPMO/PMO leaders and Project Managers, responsible for successful business case development and programme and project delivery;
  • Directors of Finance, procurement and planning, responsible for the forward planning and prioritisation of spending proposals and delivering public value;
  • Members of approvals and management boards with responsibility for scrutinising or approving spending proposals
