The Green Book is HM Treasury guidance for Central Government, setting out a framework for the appraisal and evaluation of all policies, programmes and projects. It sets out the key stages in the development of a proposal from the articulation of the rationale for intervention and the setting of objectives, through to options appraisal and, eventually, implementation and evaluation. It describes how the economic, financial, social and environmental assessments of a proposal should be combined and aims to ensure consistency and transparency in the appraisal process throughout government.

Hi David

Thank you for yesterday’s session it was really useful and I can see the practical applications in my work place already, so looking forward to getting on with some serious business case planning.

I’ve downloaded the resources that were made available, but wondered if you also had one for Porter’s 5 Forces, the position audit / Capability profile and the decision matrix (weighted scores) sheet please?

Many thanks.

Hi Vicki – thanks for your message. I’ve created a suggestion for the Porter’s Five Forces pro-forma which you can now download with the others. Thanks for suggesting it.
The position audit is really a list of appendices to add so you give a good picture of the background ‘Where are we now?’ There’s no real pro-forma for that.
The decision-making matrix is done in Excel rather than in Word so that the calculations are done automatically and the results can be modelled. Each local finance team will have their own spreadsheet. I hope that helps!
