This is just a quick update while we're at the airport waiting for our flight (economy class tickets as usual), and is intended to briefly answer the many questions we receive regarding business cases. Most of these revolve around the essential elements of a business case. That is, what should it contain?
A business case should contain:
- a summary explaining the reasons for the project and expenditure
- the objectives of the proposal
- the consequence of not proceeding
- the preferred option
- an options analysis
- the scope of works
- the benefits (financial and non financial, and measurable of course)
- the timeframe
- financial analysis
- supporting documents
We can of course help you write a business case. Alternatively, we can review and provide feedback on one you've already written. We are here to help, are cost effective, and talk in a non-jargon manner!
I'll expand on this a bit later. We're being called to the departure gate right now.
