New in 2019, ASIS is launching an exclusive members-only webinar series focused on key topics and professional development needs identified across our global community. The first of these quarterly programs centers on management and leadership (more resources around this topic area will launch soon).

In a metrics-focused and data-driven business environment, a business case is crucial tool to justify budget and capital expenditures. But how to start? Identifying data sources, evaluating the quantitative and qualitative costs and benefits, and outlining risks to various courses of action can be overwhelming.

This webinar will outline the process to develop a business case. You’ll learn what to include, where to find your data, how to evaluate alternatives, and ultimately make your case to management.

This webinar is open to current ASIS members only. Learn more about ASIS membership.

Upon completion, participants will be able to:

  1. List the elements included in a business plan
  2. Ask appropriate questions
  3. Evaluate data sources
  4. Make data-driven recommendations to the organization
