The business case you deliver must score high in credibility, accuracy, and practical value for decision makers and planners. In brief, you need a business case that stands up to critical scrutiny from financial professionals, analysts, and skeptical managers. Where proposals compete for scarce funding, your business case must give decision makers the confidence they need to take action on the first pass. You need, in other words, a professional quality business case.
Experienced case builders know that how you design, develop, and present the case is as important as the figures you project. This principle runs underlies all phases of the proven approach we call the 6D Business Case Framework™, the same structured approach presented in our best-selling books Business Case Essentials and the Business Case Guide, and the same proven approach we teach in business, government, educational, and military organizations worldwide. (SeeSolution Matrix Clients).
Over the last decade we have helped hundreds of individuals and organizations use the 6D Framework to obtain solid, practical answers to questions like these:
- How long will it take for a new enterprise resource planning system to "pay for itself"?
- How do we put our capital review process into a business case framework?
- How do we know there is a profitable business for all partners in the proposed alliance?
For those with near-term decision support and planning needs, we offer the Business Case Solution™, a structured, collaborative, case-building project, designed to deliver the highest quality business case results in the shortest possible time.
Solution Matrix Ltd. delivers the business case solutions with a focus on decision making and planning issues in six areas:
- Business Investment Decisions
Most important business decisions are investment decisions, in one way or another.
- Strategic Business Planning
Strategic planners have a special responsibility to identify risks, measure uncertainty, and show why the chosen course is best.
- Alliances and Partners.
Alliances usually succeed or fail depending on the partners' ability to address some hard questions before starting off together.
- IT justification
Justifying information technology (IT) actions or acquisitions in a complex business environment can be a serious challenge.
- Sales and Sales Support
Major sales close, increasingly, only when customers believe they are making a good business decision.
- Emerging Technologies
Emerging technologies face a host of concerns: Security. Scalability. Reliability. Not to mention this: "Why fix something that isn’t broken?"
