NB CBA= cost/benefit analysis

Process

This is the process that a practitioner should follow to build this section of the business case. This should be a numbered not option appraisal or list!

  1. Identify if you need this section in your business case, or exactly hwat type of appraisal is required. Possible options:
    1. your business case template does not require you to describe different options
    2. you need to list business case options and show costs for each
    3. you have to describe a 'do nothing' option - ie what would happen if no action is taken (no business case funding)
    4. you need to do a full cost/benefit analysis (CBA) for a number of different business case options

Content

This should describe the contents or structure of the business case, resulting from following the Process above

Scenarios
