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. These professionals have a strong advantage over their colleagues in project management, product management, asset management, finance, strategic planning, corporate governance—and the job search.

Where You Learn Case Building Matters!
The business case addresses questions like this: "What happens if we take this, or that action?" The business 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.
The internet today is awash with "business case" training courses designed to help you answer the "What happens?" question. Most of them simply present methods for making a few cost and revenue forecasts. However, to score high in credibility, accuracy, and practical value, a business case must addresses other questions as well:
"What changes follow from the action? By how much?
What is the likelihood we actually see the projected 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 "business case" courses and books are blind to this need and simply cannot teach you how to build credible answers for most of these questions. Case-builders beware! In business today, real-world managers ask all the questions and they expect answers they can trust.
