Making the Case
Have an idea you'd like to implement at Duke? Unsure how to craft the financial proposal or pitch your plans to key stakeholders? Making the Case is a hands-on, interactive program to learn the skills needed to transform an idea into a proposal. Over the course of three sessions you will develop or refine a business plan for your own idea, get feedback on stakeholders to engage and questions to ask, and practice pitching your proposal to a panel of mock judges. No actual funds will be awarded as part of this program. In order to participate you must come to the first session with a program or project idea that you would like to develop. This should be an idea that you want to move forward and that requires a budgetary component. Past examples include things like starting a new program, implementing a clinical redesign effort, launching a new division or center, or proposing a new system-wide workflow redesign. Sessions will include guidance on how to use and manipulate data using excel.
