Business Case Templates

A business case template can be an easier and quicker way to get funding for a project. The business case is important when deciding if a project is worth doing. It needs to state the cost of doing the project and what the benefit is of doing the project.

Typically a business case will set out payback of the project over a period of time as there may be small annual benefits which when added together is more than the cost of doing the project.

Often the business case is a written document with a set layout. It is a good idea to have all of an organisation’s projects in the same business case format. This aids executives when it comes to approving the project as they know what to expect. It is therefore a good idea to use a standard business case template for all projects. I have found a number of free business case templates which you can download and use. Just follow the links below. After the links to the free business case templates I have also included further information on how to produce a really good business case.
