Course Overview

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. This provides a step by step guide to developing a business case, by:

  • 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.

The course is relevant to those responsible for developing and producing spending proposals or their assessment and approval; in particular:

  • Accounting Officers – responsible for delivering public value;
  • Senior Responsible Owners (SROs), Programme Directors and Project Managers, responsible for successful delivery;
  • Directors of Finance, procurement and planning, responsible for the forward planning and prioritization of spending proposals;
  • Members of approvals and management boards with responsibility for scrutinizing or approving spending proposals.
