This introductory session outlines the course of study and the areas that you will explore along the various topics.
In this session we consider what a business case is (in context of other available tools), what it is meant to do and achieve, and the key elements that make up your business case.
You start with a sure step forward and build your confidence even as you unwrap the particulars of creating the impact you intend, to the people that matter.
In this session we explore the questions to ask in each section of the business case, and how to draft and build the content with each section of your Business Case.
What would stakeholders be looking for, and how do you shape the content to meet their expectations and approvals, are featured in this session.
In this session, we explore who you are presenting the case to, and how to deliver the case to the intended audience, to gain maximum impact and approvals.
What to find out about your audience, what their inclination would be to your Case, and how you shape your delivery style to meet them where they are, are all explored in this session.
In this session we explore an Personalized Gift store, its operating context and extension into Ecommerce, and follow Hayden the marketing office as he shapes the Business Case to get the approvals of his core decision-makers.
