Business Case Development

The Business Case needs to consider all aspects of EDM and in order to do so; the following aspects of their drivers should be covered: 

  • The Strategic Case - identifying the strategic objectives allowing them to improve service delivery and reduce costs
  • The Economic Case - to examine the options for best value for money, evaluating the best fit with business requirements, costs, benefits, risks, capability to implement
  • The Commercial Case - this will describe a solution and recommended procurement strategy for securing external services
  • The Financial Case - sets out how investment in EDM fits the organisation’s affordability constraints and cash flow forecasts
  • The Project or Programme Management Case will explain the transition to the new EDM environment, including the new organisational structure, outline plans and milestones, risk management strategy and benefits realisation strategy
