If your company has a template, use that. If not, your business case may include the following sections:

  • Project aims
  • Costs and benefits
  • Compatibility with existing business priorities
  • Risk management
  • Method followed to develop the proposal (this should also list who you have consulted)
  • Funding or other support required

Length and content of a business case will vary, but it’s always best to be  concise and to the point.
