Richard Larson Webinar - Bulletproof Business Cases - 9/22/2020
Bulletproof Business Cases - 5 Critical Things Every Project Proposal Needs
with Richard Larson, PMP, CBAP, PMI-PBA
The IIBA Hawaii Chapter is proud to present the following IIBA webinar by Richard Larson.
Do you ever work on misguided projects? Or projects that don’t meet business needs, or are doomed for failure? Worst of all are projects that are cancelled because of lack of support or sponsorship. All too often, project teams are asked to implement a solution before the underlying problem is known or assessed. In many cases, no business case is created.
A well-defined business case helps prevent these issues!
An essential ingredient to successful projects is a clear and relevant business case. It provides both insights into and a proposed solution for important business needs. Bulletproof business cases contain feasible and effective ways of justifying and recommending projects or project components that address business needs, both problems and opportunities.
Through this presentation, you will learn a repeatable process that starts with identifying business needs and ends with a bulletproof business case. You will discover how to apply each step in a 5-part method to developing business cases that was developed from the approach used for internal and external consulting work at our company. Help contribute to your organization’s bottom line with bulletproof business cases!
Attendees will be able to:
- Describe the essential components of an effective business case
- Plan a business case effort using an approach that helps you function as a trusted advisor to your organization
- Avoid common pitfalls when recommending or justifying projects
Event to be held online via Zoom.
