I'm currently studying Prince2 and am working through the business case theme. My question is about the business options in the detailed business case document, and how the contents of the business case document relate to each option.
Is it necessary to "branch" the business case document for each option?
E.g. For each option, should the document then proceed with going through the expected benefits, dis-benefits, timescales, costs, investment appraisal and major risks for the "do nothing", "do the minimum", and "do something" options? If not, which option should these contents be based upon?
I'm interested in both the "theoretical answer" and what community members consider to be most practical.
In all documentation I have seen so far, the contents after the options just refer to "the project", but the options present different project alternatives so these contents are inherently different and refer to different projects, but the study material I've seen doesn't ever "nest" these contents under the different business options.
Any help is much appreciated.
