Given increasing financial constraints, competition for funding and expectations around more rigorous financial governance in the public sector, it is essential that Public Sector Business Cases are appropriately developed and adequately explain the costs and benefits of the proposed investment. This webinar will outline the different dimensions and approaches relating to public sector cost / benefit analysis and provide some key takeaways for participants to consider within their organisational context.
Who should attend?
The content in this webinar is designed for those new to or familiar with business cases. Whether you are to be involved in writing the business case, or responsible for reviewing them, this content will give you an overview of some critical areas.
No knowledge of the topics is assumed; participants with prior experience may find the webinar useful to refresh and extend their knowledge.
