Register for this online workshop here: http://bit.ly/16Xkxe9. Preparing a business case is an integral part of the strategic management function within any organization. A business case provides evidence that a proposed product is a good investment for the business and the customer. Its importance significantly increases as the cost and complexity of the product idea increases. The main purpose of a business case is to capture the business rationale for proposing a product idea and to define the management parameters and factors involved in building it. It serves as a management tool to guide the design, management and evaluation of a product idea. This online workshop covers best practices and proven methodologies to create a compelling product business case. It will help participants understand how to create compelling business cases to justify whether or not a proposed product is a great investment. Key topics covered in this workshop include:  Identifying the market problem  Understanding customer needs and behavior  Defining the value proposition from multiple perspectives  Defining the levels of a product and the product marketing mix  Performing business analysis to align your product idea with your business strategy  Identifying key activities, resources and time required to implement  Forecasting the profit and loss to estimate investment and minimize financial risk If you have been involved in the development of any product, you know that building and marketing successful products is hard. But it is possible. The key is unlocking the specific information, skills and often those unspoken rules that almost magically come together to create a dynamite product. However, it's not magic, it's a proven system. The focus of this highly intensive workshop is on the process of creating a compelling business case rather than any specific industry or product type, making it relevant for all product managers. Participants will learn and practice a 9-step process to create a compelling business case for a product idea. Learning Objectives Upon completion, participants will be able to:  Understand why you need a business case  Identify key questions that a compelling business case must answer  Define the value proposition of a product idea
