Better Business Cases Practitioner Course

In our post-recession world, where the focus is increasingly on showing value for money, the Better Business Cases™ methodology is a great way to ensure everyone involved in the Project has an understanding of proven tools and techniques to make a stronger and more successful Business Case.

The Better Business Cases™ methodology is written by the UK Government Treasury in conjunction with the Welsh Government, is well tried and tested and in their words has lead to “quicker and cheaper business decisions”.

What does the course cover?

Given the Business Case is the most important part of a Project, identifying if the project is worth starting, and when reviewed it can influence as to whether the project continues or indeed is stopped, then you would expect it to have a real importance. However, many projects run with an optimistic Business Case, often poorly written, and organisations are spending money that may well not give them the return they expected.

This Better Business Cases 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.

Is the course right for me?

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

  • Accounting Officers – responsible for delivering public value
  • Senior Responsible Owners (SROs), Programme Directors and Project Managers, responsible for successful delivery
  • Directors of Finance, procurement and planning, responsible for the forward planning and prioritisation of spending proposals
  • Members of approvals and management boards with responsibility for scrutinising or approving spending proposals.

Exam format

  • Objective testing
  • 4 questions per paper, with 20 marks available per question
  • 40 marks or more required to pass (out of 80 available) – 50%
  • 2 ½ hours duration
  • Open book exam (International Guide to developing the Project Business Case and International Guide to developing the Programme Business Case only)
  • Take your exam online with ProctorU, find out more on our exams page
