A Useful Guide to Business Cases

Author: Richard Polom
ISBN: 978-1-906460-48-8


The business case is often seen as something of a challenge, a hurdle to be overcome, a test to be passed.

This is seriously missing the point.

Whatever organisation you work in - whether as a sole trader dealing with your bank manager or a corporate manager making an investment presentation - the business case can become your essential means of developing, communicating and implementing some important aspect of organisation strategy and decision-making. To read about the importance of building a business case with regards to coaching, click here.

For major projects creating a business case is an opportunity to test how well your organisation's aspirations and capabilities can be turned into a sustainable, shared plan for future action. For smaller decisions it sets a standard for good quality decision-making and the proper use of scarce resources.

So whether you are in the public or private sector, responsible for the stationery budget, the recruitment plan, or investment in a new IT system, A Useful Guide to Business Cases will help you with presenting, securing and making good business decisions.

We give you the tools and techniques you need for organising the business case, presenting it and making sure it gets the results you need.

This Useful Guide is an ebook for immediate download and is a 102 page pdf file.
