Our Case Studies for

Business Case Development

Our Methodology

for Business Case Development

The process starts with an assessment of current challenges in building the business case, including stakeholder analysis and their competing priorities. It also translates the technical analysis into a financial model while forecasting objections and rebuttals from the executive team and board.

Business Case Development Methodology


By performing a thorough analysis of current challenges and mapping stakeholders, this step performs a high-level audit and proposes potential solutions for business case development.

Solution Prioritization

This step tailors the solutions as per the competing priorities and figures out an MVP that can be used to demonstrate an ROI and build upon. This phase also proposes subsequent steps on the next steps after the MVP phase.


This step focuses on how the plan will be presented to different functions as well as how to address each of the objections that might be expected from different executive functions.

Discovery Workshops

This step might be deeper discoveries in the interest of each of the stakeholders and their deeper motivations of why or why not they might be interested in the initiatives.

Financial Analysis

This step identifies KPIs and the financial impact for each of the departments. As well as performing ROI and TCO analysis for the overarching initiative.
