This course has now taken place.

Producing a good business case can help you influence decision makers, drive organisational performance and gain funds for projects. However, writing convincing business cases can be a complex and time-consuming task for any busy professional.

This highly practical and interactive Producing a Good Business Case course, led by communications expert Sue Calthorpe, examines the various stages of writing a business case and the requirements of each of the sections, from executive summary to options appraisal.

Learn how to translate policy and project documents for technical and non-technical readers; how to summarise pages of prose into persuasive points and how anecdotes, fact and opinion can work together to provide compelling cases.
