Business Case Research Paper
A Business Case Definition: Documentation detailing the requirements to move an idea from conceptualization to project initiation.
For this assignment, I want you to compare and contrast a Business Case and a Business Plan. Include definitions and applications. Also please explore business case templates. The above definition of a business case is mine, if you would like to offer a different definition as part of your assignment, please do so, but of course you will defend it therein. There are examples of Business Case Templates located in the readings for this course. There are also some links provided. Please review other web sites of relevance and indicate those you use.
The research paper should be an industry of interest. Identify and describe some of the problems affecting the industry where business systems may be used.
Identify the reasons (technological and/or business drivers) behind the problems.
Select at least one problem area and research different systems solution (3 options) or technologies currently available or under development that may help solve the problem.
I want you to submit to me in three weeks a paper on the above and stating why the details in the business case template are there and how this represents the corpus of data that would be submitted to obtain funding and project approval to get a project started. The paper should be APA format and from 4 to 6 pages in length. Each paper requires at least 5 academic references; including the textbook (the textbook may certainly be cited). Use the following format guidelines: double space, 12 pt., Times New Roman. A Reference page is required but is not included in the page count. A cover page is required and is also not included in the page count. Select a business case template that you like and tell me why you selected that business case template. I want you to reference at least three different business case templates and select the one you believe to be the best. Include the one or URL for it, with your paper. You should reference the others that you evaluated to come to your conclusion.
