This course aims to help individuals write compelling business cases with a focus on promoting innovation in practice. It is designed for staff at band 5, and above, who produce reports, proposals and other written communication.

  • To contribute to the development of an environment of creativity and innovation.

  • To be able to adapt the skills taught to various written genres.
