Question 1 (Due Friday)
I am stakeholder in a Fortune 50 company. You will need to build a business case demonstrating why the project is needed in one of those Fortune 50 companies that you selected and what the benefits of the project will be when completed.
Sections that are usually required in a business case are:
1. Executive Summary
3. Statement of the problem
5. Discussion of Possible Options
· The benefits: why it would be a good idea to do it, including how far it addresses the problem;
· The costs, including resource requirements. It’s often helpful to include figures and graphs here;
· The likely time-scale for the project, and to see a return on the investment, with reasons; and
· The risks, both of doing it, and that might prevent successful implementation.
As far as possible, these should be realistic, and preferably supported by solid data. Where you have estimated, this should be based on a reasonable source, which you should cite if possible.
7. Details of your Chosen Option
