Business Case

The concept of writing a business case sounds simple – put forward a recommendation of a change you want to make, identify the investment required and the resulting benefits for your business and share this with senior management. Once approval is provided implement the project. The reality is a sizeable challenge for every company.

Companies That Do Not Use A Business Case To Deliver Projects

Leaders must deliver on their agreement, no matter the context they inherit or face: excuses are not tolerated for long by demanding stakeholders. As a result, leaders come under enormous pressure to perform, with limited resources and restricted time.

Dr Peter Fuda

Business cases are developed to obtain management commitment and approval for investment in business change including programmes and projects. A business case provides a framework for the planning and management of organisational change. The ongoing viability of the programme or project is monitored against the business case.

Every business has problems, every leader must make decisions efficiently and ensure they achieve the result. The project management profession exists to resolve those problems. Our experienced consultants work with leaders to provide:

Decades ago the business case was written to ensure the triple constraints of scope, budget and time were met.

Fast forward to the current era and companies no longer just want the triple constraint, they also expect value, ROI, benefits realisation, cost-benefit analysis, change management, communication and stakeholders involved, risk analysis, solution options, strategical alignment, whole of life costs.

Business cases that don’t relate to business objectives fail to connect their audience. The majority of the most influential in gaining approval are business users themselves, and nearly half of these are C-level representatives. Many make the mistake of trying to implement an enterprise-wide solution. This is extremely difficult to do and can create a fragmented end goal. If you are able to show that adding value in one area, although small, can have a positive impact on the business as a whole, you are more likely to have your business case.

We embrace the human side of business, which makes us better at delivering the business side of business. Achieving ambitions is about unlocking the potential within every individual, every client, and every company.
