Managing Project Business Case - The Systems Approach


This course presents projects as investment initiatives that need to yield economic, social and financial returns—creating value for investors and other stakeholders (e.g., community) that have participated. Tools and techniques to gauge viability and elements of the business case are discussed. Projects are building blocks to strategy implementation; thus, the links between strategy, projects and benefits realisation are also discussed.

Why Should an Individual Attend?

Many project professionals are caught up in carrying out their technical activities as per their scope. However, a project is far more than a grouping of physical components/parts. Besides, it will serve projects well should the professionals involved in them begin to also appreciate that projects are implemented for the sake of operations and that resources expensed shall be recouped, just as for any investments

  • Understand projects as investments
