About this Course

Our Better Business Cases qualification is based on the ‘Five Case Model’ – the UK government’s best practice approach to developing spending proposals and enabling effective business decisions.

The model provides a step-by-step guide to developing a business case that:

  • Establishes a clear need for intervention (a case for change)
  • Sets clear objectives in terms of return on investment
  • Considers a wide range of potential solutions ensuring an optimal balance of benefits, cost and risks
  • Sets out arrangements to ensure successful delivery of the proposal.

Organizations adopting this proven approach can expect a reduction in unnecessary spending and improved decision making process, whilst project teams have a greater chance of securing necessary funding and support for change initiatives.

Accreditation pending


  • Senior Responsible Owners (SROs), Programme Directors and other Directors with responsibility for the successful delivery of programmes and projects.
