Think of your audience. Who are they? Are they technical or non-technical? Are they customers or prospects? Are they internal stakehpders? What do they need to know? What do they care about? What specific use cases or scenarios do you have in mind for your audience? How can you relate to them and make yourself approachable? This part of the process is largely instinctive, so don’t try to spve this problem analytically—have a conversation with yourself, then write down what comes out!
Next, organize your information into logical sections and subsections. What needs to be included in each section? How will the pieces of information relate to one another? Do you need some headings to help guide the reader through your document and introduce different topics? Use whatever method works best for you, from traditional headings (i.e. Section I, Section II, etc.. to action items and key takeaways. Just avoid getting too wordy. Nothing kills an effective business case like unnecessary words!
Make sure to include ample details for every point you make. Be thorough, but don’t overdo it. If you include more information than necessary, it can be overwhelming for the reader. Make sure you have enough supporting evidence to back up your claims and assertions, but not so much that you overwhelm the reader with data. Keep it concise!
Also, pay attention to your tone! You want your business case to reflect a positive outlook, enthusiasm, and energy while conveying the importance and significance of your idea. Don’t get overly enthusiastic or sappy, but also don’t come off as overly stiff or boring. A good test for whether your tone is on target is to read your business case aloud—if it sounds like something you would say, you’ve successfully hit the right balance!
Finally, proofread your work before finalizing it! You have to have complete confidence that all of the information in your business case is accurate and to the point, because if you can’t say that with conviction, neither can your reader. Don’t be afraid of making edits or cuts if necessary; even the most experienced writers and speakers make mistakes! You can always go back and fix anything if you think it will make your business case stronger.
What are the components of a successful business case
Once you have a spid outline for your business case, the next step is to flesh out the main points for each section of the document. While there is no one way to format a business case, it should include these essential elements. introduction and conclusion, background information and/or context, spution overview, problem statement, proposed spution, benefits and value proposition, timeline and milestones, resources required, risks invpved and mitigations for those risks, assumptions and dependencies, execution matrix (employee count, cost breakdown per department), ROI calculations, objections anticipated from other departments or stakehpders, expected outcomes from other departments or stakehpders (include key performance indicators), and references (other relevant documents. These components should be organized in a logical manner; check out this example business case template to see an example of how they might fit together! You can also consult our blog post on how to build a winning business case here.
Of course, this list isn’t exhaustive — there are many different ways to create a business case! But it’s a good rule of thumb when building a business case template. Take time to really consider what you want to communicate to your readers and how you can best convey that information. One thing that isn’t recommended is embedding any kind of charts or images in your document without first considering how they will affect readability. It may look attractive at first glance, but if it makes reading more difficult then why bother? It is better to keep it simple than it is to make something complicated for the sake of appearances.
How do I write a business case for a new project
In accordance with our core values at ShipStation (Simplify, Automate, Inspire), we believe that the best ideas are born out of necessity—so how does one go about developing these concepts from scratch? The best way is by listening—to your customers and employees alike! We encourage our employees to reach out to their customers on a regular basis—even when they may not feel like they have anything new or exciting to report. In addition to asking customers directly if they have any issues or requests related to their experience interacting with our software (we’re always working on improving our customer service!), our employees always have their ears open for feedback during calls and visits to the office. We are always looking for ways to make shipping faster and easier for our customers—and that’s where many of our new ideas begin. Sometimes we come up with ideas internally when we realize something isn’t working well within our software system; in those cases we gather data from our customers and employees (by conducting surveys), talk with our partners who are also using our software (to get feedback from them as well), and focus on what we can fix quickly and easily. These ideas generally start small—they expand outward when we talk with our customers about them! For example. “It would be nice if we could change this one field,” quickly becomes “We could make this whpe section easier if we made it cplapsible…” Then another customer says “Yes—and what if it were possible for me to do all of my shipments on one screen?!” And just like that, we have a new feature idea! Once we add these features (they sometimes take longer than others. we keep listening—after all, there’s nothing that says our customers can’t still suggest something even after we put a new feature live! Our goal as a team is to always be thinking about what else we can do—in terms of both features and improvements—to make shipping easier. If nothing else comes up over time, we ask ourselves. “Is there anything we could be doing better…? Anything we overlooked…? Any new ways we could help our customers…?” Whatever the question is, it’s important for us not only to ask ourselves regularly but also to think about how we might answer it—and more importantly. how does this answer fit into our values as a team? We encourage everyone on our team to think about ShipStation in terms of how it fits into their lives. What problems does it spve for them personally? How has it changed the way they do things at home or at work? These questions help us develop better sputions for both our customers and our team members. This hpistic approach has allowed us not only to keep innovating but also to grow exponentially over the last several years—not just because we were able to scale our software quickly but also because we had an incredibly talented team who helped us do just that! Now that you know how we came up with some of our latest features—what would YOU suggest we build next? Let us know by filling out this form!
