Design, Build, and Deliver a Compelling Business Case

Solution Matrix Ltd. Since 1994, the Leading Authority on Business Case Analysis.

The business case you deliver must score high in credibility, accuracy, and practical value. 

Return on investment cash flow stream: maximize ROI with increased gains and reduced costsBusiness case results include cash flow projections and practical guidance for managing actions, decisions, and investments.

Reaching those objectives begins by understanding that numbers alone do not make the case. How you design, develop, and deliver the case is as important as the return on investment (ROI) and other figures you project.

Since 1994 Solution Matrix Limited has helped thousands of individuals and organizations answer questions like these:

  • How do I support my program proposal with a strong, effective cost-benefit analysis?
  • The Project Management Office wants financial justification for funding proposals. What are they looking for?
  • How do we measure return on investment (ROI) for products? For marketing expenditures? For professional training?
  • The Capital Review Committee requires total cost of ownership analysis before agreeing to major acquisitions. What does TCO include?

You may be facing such questions for the first time and have little or no background in finance and planning. Or, you may have extensive experience in these areas, and still need to get up to speed on what belongs in your case, how to write the case, and how to package and "make" the case with an effective presentation. For your case building needs, either way, Solution Matrix Limited offers industry leading:
