Cath Convery, of the learning and development consultancy Explosive Learning Solutions (ELS), will be explaining the â€˜Better Business Casesâ„¢â€™ model at Project Challenge. Project Challenge, scheduled for 10th and 11th October at Londonâ€™s Olympia, is an event that focuses on anything and everything related to â€˜projectsâ€™.
Cath explained, â€œBetter Business Casesâ„¢ is a systematic and objective approach to all stages of the business case development process. It sits alongside – and complements – HM Treasuryâ€™s Green Book guidance.
â€œELS has been delivering training relating to this approach since its release â€“developed by HM Treasury in 2009.â€
Generally available since 2014, Better Business Casesâ„¢ is based on The Five Case Model, the UK governmentâ€™s best practice approach to planning spending proposals and enabling effective business decisions. The Five Case Model covers:
- The strategic caseâ€“ strategic fit and clear investment objectives
- The economic case â€“ optimising value for money
- The commercial case â€“ attractiveness to the market and procurement arrangements
- The financial case â€“ affordability
- The management case â€“ deliverability and plans for deliver
At Project Challenge, Cath will be focusing on the commercial case – exploring what that might include and outlining some of the tools that could be used to write the case.
â€œUnderstanding an established and proven methodology â€“ such as this – which can be applied at both the strategic (macro) and tactical (micro) levels is becoming essential as a core business competence for any manager or director,â€ commented Cath.
â€œNot only do those undergoing Better Business Casesâ„¢ training gain vital insight into what constitutes a good business case, its lifecycle and contents but they develop skills that enable them to reduce waste as well as maximise value for money from any project.
â€œThis enables their organisations to reduce unnecessary spend, optimise public value form the project, improve the quality of decision making, generate faster throughput and develop a clear, proportionate approval process,â€ said Cath.
â€œIncreasingly, the Better Business Casesâ„¢ approach is gaining acceptance in the public sector â€“ and that also means that any private sector organisation that wants to do business with this sector should understand, and practice, this approach too.â€
