Business Case

Business Case

A strategic, integrated understanding of business drivers to analyse and test the merit of a proposed investment and tell the right story that resonates with the intended audience.

Getting the case for investment right
The decision to invest in any project requires relevant documentation and evidence. Strategic thinking and discipline is required to develop a compelling business case, and is essential to analyse and test the merit of a proposed investment and to tell a story  justifying the decision – that resonates with the intended audience

We work with clients to:

  • Articulate why it is strategically important to invest now

  • Detail whether the proposed option is the best option for investment

  • Clearly define the scope, cost and risks associated with an investment

  • Show how the net triple-bottom-line impact of the proposal provides value-for-money

  • Outline how the project can be successfully delivered to achieve the intended benefits

No business case is the same. No structure fits all. Our business case advisers understand this and draw on our diversity of experience and take the time to know our clients’ goals and priorities to develop options that clearly put organisations on a trajectory to achieve that vision.

A unique and powerful practice in business case services
  • We bring a unique and pragmatic blend of strategic and technical understanding of infrastructure drivers to deliver a strong and resonant strategic assessment, rationale and narrative understood by those outside the project.

  • We insist on framing the project in the context of delivering the organisation’s strategic goals, rather than just addressing obvious needs and wants.

  • We fully embrace investment logic mapping to critically shape an investment and simplify decision-making.

  • We bring deep delivery and construction expertise to provide practical, real-world insights into the delivery and procurement strategy, program, delivery risks and costs. This means we apply a rare coverage of strategic and delivery experience to a business case.
