The business case is not just a document; rather it is an instrument that will be used to make an informed decision. A better decision can be made when the organizational strategy and the impact of the proposed project on the strategic objectives can be understood. Writing an effective business case requires a detailed analysis and understanding of organizational strategy, culture, governance, and policies. So, a review of project management approaches, followed by detailed cost and benefit analysis as well as risk evaluation, will help compare various options to identify the most optimum solution.
