The Business Case is No Longer Optional

Businesspeople everywhere have a rapidly shrinking tolerance for management error. They also demand real accountability for decisions and plans. And, everywhere, the competition for scarce funds is increasing.

No surprise, many organisations now require business case support for project, product, investment, and capital acquisition proposals.

Businesspeople today with proven expertise in building cases and managing risk are rare and in high demand. They know they have the advantage over professional colleagues and competitors in project management, product management, asset management, finance, strategic planning, corporate governance—and the job search.

Master Class participants join more than 18,000 professionals on six continents who have completed the premier business case seminar.

Where You Learn Case Building Matters!

The business case addresses questions like this: "What happens if we take this or that action?" The case answers in business terms: business costs, business benefits, and business risks. Decision makers and planners rely on solid business case analysis for building the understanding and confidence they need to take action.

Buyer Beware!

The internet today is awash with books, training, and templates promising to help you answer the "What happens?" question. Most merely suggest a few cost and revenue forecasts for your proposed action or investment. However, revenue and cost forecasts alone make a weak business case.

To achieve credibility, accuracy, and practical value in real-world business, however, the case must deliver clear answers to other questions as well: Is funding your proposal a good business decision? Will we really see these results? Can we expect significant non-financial impacts? And, which risks should we know about? Business case proof is compelling and defensible only when Case builders address all the questions.

Nevertheless, most case building courses are blind to this need and cannot teach you how to answer such questions credibly. Case builder beware! In business today, real-world managers ask all the questions, and they expect answers they can trust.

Uniquely Successful Approach

In the Master Class Seminar you will learn and apply the same principles of evidence and reasoning that bring decisive proof in the courtroom and the science lab. Our approach is unique and proven highly successful.

Former participants worldwide report unmatched success meeting the full range of real-world business case information needs with the skills learned in the Business Case Master Class.
