How to Build a Business Case for Compliance & Ethics Investments

Every good business case is structured around a problem (or opportunity) and solution format. The solution is your desired investment, and gaining investment approval often hinges on having the right data. You need to prove that you either have a problem or that you have an opportunity for improvement. 

When building your business case, there are five steps to focus on. We’ve outlined these steps and an example of each in this worksheet.

  • Market Assessment:
    What are current marketplace dynamics?
  • Vision:
    What are your program goals?

  • Risk Assessment:
    What is the problem or opportunity?

  • Recommended Solution:
    What investment do you recommend? 

  • Estimated Outcomes:
    How will this investment support your program goals while solving the problem?
