Business Case Development

Code: MGMT1640

Course description

Students learn to create a business case based on a real-life case study and to communicate in a simulated environment, the business case to decision makers and other stakeholders. Students learn to differentiate between needs, goals and objectives and to set quantifiable objectives. They perform a cost-benefit analysis to calculate key financial metrics, including return on investment (ROI) and payback period. Students apply tasks and techniques from the Enterprise Analysis knowledge area of the BABOK (IIBA Business Analysis Body of Knowledge) including the assessment of capability gaps (gap analysis), the formulation of a problem statement, the definition of the solution scope using a scope model (context diagram), and the creation of a weighted scoring table to support the decision process (decision analysis).
