This Oxford event aimed to elucidate what makes a good business case – the starting point of all projects. It will also give participants the chance to work in groups on a practical example of a business case.

Ideally, the project manager should always be engaged in time to actively participate in the preparation of the business case, but in practice this is often not the case. Key assumptions of the business case may no longer reflect project realities. This event focused on how best to deal with changes in the business case.


We were pleased to welcome as keynote speaker Ian Gambles Director England, The Forestry Commission. Ian presented some classic business case challenges, with reference to the Forestry Commission and other examples, new business case horizons, and the enduring role of the business case.




Our second speaker was Nick Wensley, Business Adviser, Young Enterprise Programme who covered business cases past, present and future and considered what the future holds for developing business cases.
