Business Case Essentials Chapters
Chapter 1 - What's a Business Case? A high-level overview of what belongs in a business case and why. Explains the nature of the case and where the proof lies that a recommended course of action is a good business decision.
Chapter 2 - Introduction and Overview. Building blocks that define the case, including the subject of the case (the proposed action and the business objectives it addresses), and the purpose of the case (who will use the case, for what purpose, and what information they need to meet the purpose).
Chapter 3 - Methods and Assumptions. Establishing credibility and making results understandable. Illustrates building the comprehensive cost model for the case and establishing the benefits rationale--the reasoning that legitimizes benefits and shows how their value is determined. Also shows how non financial benefits are made tangible and brought into the case.
Chapter 4 - Business Results. The case's reason for being. Interpretation is minimimal and the numbers speak for themselves. Includes projected financial results in terms of cash flow outcomes and financial metrics such as NPV and ROI. Also includes expected non financial outcomes.
Chapter 5 - Sensitivity and Risk Analysis. Case readers need to know which assumptions are most important in controlling predicted results, and the likelihood that results turn out better or worse than predicted outcomes.
Chapter 6 - Conclusions and Recommendations. These may be obvious to those who propose and develop the case, but for the wider audience, they need to be developed clearly and concretely. Recommendations include practical guidance on how to maximize gains, reduce costs, and minimize risks.
