You are to develop a short business case, identifying a need for change within a firm or organisation, and develop the components required to “sell” the project, including any resources, (e.g. IT System), to deliver the proposed change, to senior management in the firm or organisation.
Part of this assignment is to develop a business case format. The business case should contain details of the project background, measurable objectives, current situation, problem/opportunity statement, critical assumptions and constraints, analysis of options and recommendations, preliminary project requirements, budget estimate and financial analysis, schedule estimate, and potential risks.
The project business case should be presented in the appropriate report format and include referencing in the APA style as appropriate.
