Writing an Unbeatable Business Case

“Why” questions are often the most important ones, and the business case is all about answering them. In an article for Project Smart, Simon Buehring addresses what he considers eight key sections of a business case.

Second, alternatives to this project should be explained and why they are inferior to the project at hand. Third, list all the benefits to be yielded from the project.
