Business people today are rapidly losing tolerance for management error. They are also demanding real accountability for decisions and plans. And, everywhere, the competition for scarce funds is increasing.
It is no surprise that many organizations now requirea business case to support proposals for projects, products, investments, and capital acquisitions.
As a result, those with proven expertise in case building and risk management are rare and in high demand. They have a strong advantage over their professional colleagues in project management, product management, asset management, finance, strategic planning, corporate governance—and the job search.
