A business case captures the reasons for starting a project or task. It precedes the initiation phase of a project. It is used to outline the benefits of the project, task or idea to the organization. It can be presented in a well-structured written document, but may also come in the form of a short verbal agreement or presentation. The outcome of a successful business case is approval to initiate a project.
