Effective Business Case Design

To support proactive, evidence-based approaches to change across the NSW Health system managers must prepare strong, well-researched business cases. A good idea articulated through an effective business case can make a difference to your organisation, your team and your patients.

This one-day workshop equips experienced managers with the skills, knowledge and approaches required to design an effective business case in the NSW Health context.

The workshop provided me with a good overview of how to construct a business case that can be evaluated by external parties as a worthwhile option.
