Business Case Template
Group Assignment: Business Case Template
Group Assignment Instructions
This week, you will participate in a group assignment. Your Instructor will assign you to a group. You will collaborate with your group members in a group Discussion Board, and you will work together as a team to design a business case template for a socially relevant project.
Your Instructor will monitor but not participate in the Discussion. You will be graded on your participation in the Discussion, as well as your contribution to the design of the template. Review the group Assignment Rubrics to be sure you understand the assignment requirements.
Each group member will submit the business case template individually. You will be given feedback by your Instructor, and you will use the template in Week 2 to present your business case for your Final Capstone Project.
Using the materials from this week’s Learning Resources, collaborate with your group members to prepare a business case template for a socially relevant project. The template should be no more than 2 pages and must address these items:
* The template should include five to seven different components. For each component:
1- Describe its purpose.
2- Explain how it is developed. For example: What inputs are needed to develop this component? What tools/techniques/processes are used to develop this component?
