Course Information

This course is designed to provide delegates with a thorough understanding of the ‘Five Case Model’ – the UK government’s best practice approach to developing 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

Day 1

  • Awareness Exercise 1 – Relevant Learning Points
  • Why is Business Case Required?
  • Awareness Exercise 2 – Why do projects fail?
  • Unpacking the 5 Case Model

Day 2

  • Unpacking the 5 Case Model (continued)
  • Awareness Exercise 3 – the Intelligent Customer
  • Foundation Examination


The purpose of the foundation certification is to confirm that you have sufficient knowledge and understanding of the guidance to be able to work effectively with, or as a member of, a team to develop a business case using The Five Case Model. This is a 40 minute, multiple-choice, closed book examination. Delegates need to score 50% or more, to pass.
