The Business Case (focusing on the entire scope of change to the business that is affected by the project) is a PRINCE2™ component, but its importance cannot be overemphasized. Responsibility for the Business Case belongs to the Project Board (specifically, the Executive, who represents the Business) and the Project Manager.
The Project Board creates and owns the Business Case; the Project Manager provides the information that enables the Project Board to evaluate the Business Case and also ensures that the Business Case is considered in project decisions. PRINCE2™ drives home the notion of explicit go/no-go decisions – based on the Business Case – in the start-up and initiation of the project, and at the end of each Stage (see Exhibit 3).

As a recognized educator he has trained thousands of project managers over the past 23 years, including 13 years as the Project Management tutorial instructor for the Drug Information Association.
Jay’s recent responsibilities included leading the North American Change Management and Training practices for a UK-based management consulting firm, training corporate consulting professionals in project and program management, and supporting clients in managing the “people” issues of their business change initiatives. He has authored articles on training, project management and information technology for various publications, and often presents at conferences, including the PMI North American Congress (1999, and 2004 – 2007), ProjectWorld and ProjectSummit.
