A business case is a fundamental part of the project management process. This decision making tool aims to convince senior management of the need to invest resources in a proposed project rather than in other competing alternatives. A business case also helps analyze the financial and non-financial outcomes following from the project to determine how costs and revenue will change and what effects will occur after project completion.
This Business Case Template describes typical items to be included in a business case. It also gives some suggestions regarding document writing and presentation styles. This template will help business analysts, project managers, sponsors and other decision makers review the arguments for or against a proposed project. It is available for free downloading.
