Business Case

The Business Case template reflects the steps set out in the PRINCE2 Method and is designed to prompt the Project Manag­er and help in the creation of the Business Case.  There is also a Product Description for the Business Case at Appendix A of the PRINCE2 Manual.

Once your Business Case is complete check the document against the following Quality Criteria:

  • The reasons for the project must be consistent with the corporate or programme strategy
  • The Project Plan and Business Case must be aligned
  • The benefits should be clearly identified and justified
  • It should be clear how the benefits will be realized
  • It should be clear what will define a successful outcome
  • It should be clear what the preferred business option is, and why
  • Where external procurement is required, it should be clear what the preferred sourcing option is, and why
  • It should be clear how any necessary funding will be obtained
  • The Business Case includes non-financial, as well as financial, criteria
  • The Business Case includes operations and maintenance costs and risks, as well as project costs and risks
  • The Business Case conforms to organizational accounting standards (e.g. break-even analysis and cash-flow conventions)
  • The major risks faced by the project are explicitly stated, together with any proposed responses


Brug af PRINCE2 skabeloner

Her finder du skabeloner og fagstof tilknyttet PRINCE2. Skabelonerne, og brugen af disse, er tiltænkt som eksempler og fungere således som et generisk udgangspunkt. Hvilke dokumenter der anvendes, og indholder i dokumenterne, bør tilpasses det enkelte projekt.

For uddybende forklaring af skabelonerne, og deres anvendelse, anbefaler vi et kursus i PRINCE2, eller blot bruger skabelonerne som opslagsværk.
