(Writing Effective Business Cases for Business Development, Project Portfolio Environments and Individual Initiatives)
A Systems Approach to Creating and Managing Business Cases Encompassing Business Development, Project, Program, Portfolio Management and PMOs
This course presents the AIPMO 9C’s, an innovative, 21st-century principle-based lifecycle-based approach to business case structures, content, and the case building process. AIPMO has designed the framework with experts to cover and integrate projects, programs and portfolios using a systems approach to business case writing, that supports Agile, waterfall, and hybrid methodologies. See figure 1. The 9C’s principle-based framework when implemented, will be benchmarkable against AIPMO’s principle-based maturity model which is in based on current research and in development.
Attendees will use the business cases exercises on the course. However, time is set aside for people to bring their own cases and work on these, with the potential for coaching input from the facilitator and support from other course participants.
Part II – The Business Case in Project Portfolio Management
Part II changes the nature of the course; whereas Part I focuses on the construction of robust cases, the remainder of the activities look at the broader world of business cases in projects, programs and portfolios and the context of the Project Management Office.
This will scope in interactions with key stakeholders and the creation, balancing and reshaping of the portfolio, as events in the external environment impact the business and drive changes.
