This webinar is an overview of the skills needed to perform cost-benefit analysis and assembling a business case.

Business Analysts have to analyze new opportunities and make the business case for new project initiatives. That requires quantitative analysis of costs, benefits, risks, alternative solutions, and the net return on investment so that the proposed investment can be compared to other opportunities and a sound business decision can be made.

Learning objectives include:

  • Discover fixed, variable, and other costs and benefits
  • Quantify costs and benefits in their present value
  • Calculate net present value, net cost-benefit, net risk exposure, and ROI
  • Assemble a convincing business case
