Course 6: Defining the Solution and Making the Business Case
In course 6 we examine the technique of gap analysis and how options are evaluated in order to close the gap between an ‘as is’ state and a desired ‘to be’ state. We look at how the business architecture forms a vital backdrop to this analysis and how the POPIT model provides a comprehensive framework against which the analysis of options can be carried out.
The course also considers the structure and content of the business case, and financial appraisal techniques which are important to a cost benefit analysis of each option and recommended solution.
