Course Description

Creating strong recommendations involves identifying a business need, problem, or opportunity, defining the nature of a solution that meets that need, and justifying the investment necessary to deliver that solution. Typically, this is contained in a business case that provides decision makers the context and information they need to evaluate the benefit of the investment.  Participants learn how to write a business case after conducting the proper investigations.  They will be able to fully understand the business problem and opportunity, assess the capabilities of the enterprise to carry out
specific change, determine the most feasible business solution approach, define the scope of the solution, and prepare a document that concisely presents their findings.

This course also covers how to identify assumptions and constraints and prioritize requirements, and how to model both the current and proposed states of the organization. Using this model and the business case, participants learn how to validate and verify their proposed solution with stakeholders.
