training /  Virgin Media

We have been working with Virgin Media to develop the approach to compiling and assessing business cases for changes to their network.   

This engagement has involved working with the senior network architecture team to determine the nature and level of analysis required in developing business cases, as well as developing templates for the presentation of information at the various investment gates, and ultimately to the Board.  We have also worked with training the junior members of the team on all aspects of business case development.

Topics we have worked on include:

  • Assessing project value – NPV and other financial assessment techniques
  • Impact of investment on company finances (balance sheet, P&L and financing)
  • Dealing with uncertainty in decision making
  • Assessing and quantifying the benefits
  • The process for developing business cases 
  • Business case completeness and check-list
  • Effective presentation of the business case
