Look more broadly at the issue in the business case analysis
By exploring lots of scenarios in the business case analysis, Business Case Consulting can identify what will be best for you. It may not be the solution you had expected.
1. Are you addressing the right problem?
Business Case Consulting ensures the solution will meet your business challenge by taking a broader view and looking behind the immediate concerns.
2. Have all scenarios been considered?
No options are overlooked in our business case analysis which uses MECE (mutually exclusive and collectively exhaustive) principles. The best technical business case is quickly identified by rejecting options that are unrealistic or don’t align with the strategy.
3. What will deliver the most value?
High-level assessments of the financial business case, using parametric modelling and multi-criteria analysis, identify the options that will generate the most value.
4. Can you meet your green commitments and remain profitable?
The search for creative solutions which combine sustainability with profitability is an integral part of our Business Case Consulting and the technical business case.
5. Have confidence in an independent perspective
By relying on our independent consulting service, you ensure an outcome that is free from bias and any internal organisational politics.
A solid business case analysis, incorporating the technical and financial business case, provides certainty for your investment decision.
A robust financial business case adds confidence
Financial assessments are a key feature of our Business Case Consulting. The great thing to remember is that because we’re consultants as well as engineers, our solutions are both realistic and feasible.
1. Financial estimates are based on a viable technical business case
Business Case Consulting builds financial estimates on the technical concept. It makes estimates more reliable and ensures nothing essential is left out.
2. A global approach paired with local knowledge brings you the best of both worlds
Drawing on our local network ensures figures for capital budgeting in our business case analysis are realistic and reflect local conditions.
3. Take the risk out of critical elements such as environmental impact or legislation
Our in-house engineering expertise means Business Case Consulting is able to scan high-risk elements for you – such as wastewater treatment, social impact, and more.
4. Identify risk and maximise value
The financial business case includes sensitivity analysis to test how robust the business case is and highlight critical timings. This enables you to better manage risks to realise the true value of the investment.
5. Our technical experience brings additional benefits
We’re not simply consultants, we’re engineers with real experience of implementing projects. Our business case analysis, and in particular the technical business case, is based on this real experience. It also means you can draw on our assistance and advice at later stages in the project if necessary.
6. Peace of mind comes from our consulting experience
You can rely on the accuracy of the cost estimates from our Business Case Consulting team. We are involved in more than 100 industrial projects every year.
Reliable estimates are fundamental to good investment decisions. Without them, your investment could be unviable. Expect rigour, expertise and transparency in the financial business case from Business Case Consulting.
