Making the case
business-case templates give project teams the direction they need to deliver the right project, right on time
Clearly defining a project's intended benefits at the outset can help project teams actively advance the organization's strategy. According to PMI's recent Pulse of the Profession® report, The Strategic Impact of Projects: Identify Benefits to Drive Business Results, organizations that frequently identify benefits before the start of a project see 74 percent of initiatives meet goals and business intent. In comparison, only 48 percent of projects deliver similar results when organizations don't have this practice in place. Incorporating a business-case template into the initiation process can help project teams gather the information they need to make the right decisions as projects move forward.
