Business cases for project development05/03/15

developing the justification to change from an organisation’s status quo. NHS requirements for a business case are in
accordance with HM Treasury’s Five Case Model, and are aligned with the NHS organisation’s governance
requirements and external reviewer / approver requirements / checklists.
