Make your business venture a better one, by signing up to this course-only package that complements the HM Treasury’s Green Book guidance, and utilises the UK government’s best practice approach to planning and enabling business decisions that can help a business thrive. With new guidance from the Treasury, with regards to how future requests for treasury funding should be presented, it’s essential to understand how to structure business case proposals, and this foundation course is a perfect place to start.

Work with the Five Case Model

The crucial model, revolving around the five cases – Strategic, Economic, Commercial, Financial and Management – is central to the course, and will allow students to understand how to plan spending proposals and business decisions with precision and expertise. The development of a public spending proposal needs to be based on this HM Treasury model, and by signing up to this course you will be able to further understand the fundamental elements so that you can apply this new-found knowledge in the future.

The course is split into two modules, but don’t let that fool you! Within these two modules students will find 48 interactive lessons that are grouped into 7 sessions, so that you can enjoy a comprehensive look at the topic in its entirety. Within 20 hours, students will be ready to move on to the next stage, and take the accompanying examination (not included), which is also available to sign up to today!
