Business Case Training

Business Case Training

With 15 years’ experience of hands on experience developing business cases across a variety of industries, frameworks and project sizes we have developed a business case training course that enables us to teach a proven approach to successfully develop a preliminary or detailed  business case, and avoid many of the common pitfalls of business case preparation.  Our Business Case How to Guide is underpinned by our experience with different business case development frameworks including the UK Five Case Model, National PPP Guidelines, Infrastructure Australia guidelines, Queensland Project Assessment Framework, Building Queensland Framework, NSW Guidelines for Capital Business Cases and Victorian Investment Lifecycle and High Value/High Risk Guidelines.

Standard 1-Day Course

Our standard Business Case course is a 1 day online course, supplemented by a one or two day, face to face course covering the practical aspects of business case development (including cost, benefit and risk modelling) and how to apply that knowledge to locally used frameworks, such as Qld Government's - Project Assurance Framework, Building Queensland Framework and Infrastructure Australia's Guidelines.

Additionally, we can also provide customer specific training, including:

  • One on one or small group training
  • Combination 'training and consulting packages' to quickly uplift organisational capability.

About Our Courses

Online Course - Better Business Cases Training

Solute offers the 'Better Business Cases' certification course and examination.  This course is online and is based on The Five Case Model, which is the UK Government’s best practice approach to business case development.  This course provides a step by step guide to developing a business case. 

Individuals can also attend Solute's bridging course which is a one or two day classroom style course that links the Better Business Cases processes and techniques to locally used frameworks, such as the Queensland Government business case frameworks (i.e. Building Queensland's Business Case Development Framework and Queensland Treasury's Project Assessment Framework).  See details below.

Classroom based course - Solute Business Case Methodology

The Solute business case methodology is a step by step guide describing ‘how to’ develop a business case.  The methodology was initially developed in 2006 as an internal guide for our consultants and first released to clients in 2008 including - methodology, tools, templates and training program.

The Solute business case methodology has been successfully deployed on both public and private sector projects covering the fields of property, infrastructure, utilities, resources, information technology and community services.  It has been the methodology used on many of Queensland Government’s largest ICT Program and Project Business Cases.
