During initial stages of a project, value must be demonstrated through a well-constructed business case, in order to enhance likelihood of funding, stakeholder acceptance and chances of a solid execution. A business case process consists of four steps: frame, validate, evaluate and deliver. At each stage, several critical activities must take place, such as an influence analysis, stakeholder interviews, net present value calculations and comprehensive presentation of ideas. If done correctly in the early phases of a project, the likelihood of project success grows. A sound business case indicates that proper rigor and due diligence have been performed, and it enables business decision excellence by presenting an easily categorized project based on quantified probability and range of risk.
