Better Business Cases™ is a systematic and objective approach to all stages of the business case development process that sits alongside, and complements, HM Treasury’s Green Book guidance.


Why it’s important

The 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. Understanding of an established and proven methodology which can be applied at both strategic (macro) and tactical (micro) levels is becoming essential as core business competencies for any manager or director.


What it covers

The foundation certification is to confirm that candidates 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 The Five Case Model. The Practitioner qualification is to confirm candidates have achieved sufficient understanding of the theory and application of the Five Case Model to allow them to effectively develop and produce a business case. The course follows the syllabus as set down by the APMG Group and the ILM:


  • 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


Who will benefit

Individuals will gain an insight into what constitutes a good business case, its lifecycle and contents. Delegates will leave feeling confident of developing robust recommendations and proactively contributing to their management with an improved understanding of the Better Business Case process, relevant to both those responsible for producing business cases and those who approve them. A successful Practitioner candidate should be able to start applying the model to a real project.
