Need a defined plan to implement a major infrastructure or social services project?
Want the assurance that your project is viable and sustainable?
Ready to effectively position your organisation and project with funders and influencers?

The team at Anna Dixon Consulting is highly experienced in business case development for major infrastructure and social service projects, having led comprehensive business case development for numerous multi-million dollar projects for Western Australia State Government agencies, local governments and non-profits.

From the outset, we’ll work with you to delve into the objectives of your project and check the alignment between your intended strategy and the likelihood of meeting your objectives.

We’ll then work with you to prepare a robust Business Case, tailored to your individual needs. Business case development incorporates considerations including:

  • Detailed project description, including project objectives and desired outcomes;
  • Project alignment with your business/organisation’s policy and strategy and, when relevant, government policy and strategy;
  • Detailed breakdown of project deliverables;
  • Summary of completed stakeholder engagement (we can assist you to undertake this element if required);
  • Economic and financial impact analysis;
  • Identification of need;
  • Discussion of socio-economic benefits;
  • Case studies of similar projects and their impact;
  • Whole of life sustainability (for infrastructure projects);
  • Operational costs;
  • Identification of options available, assessment of these and recommendation/s for optimal return on investment;
  • Funding strategy and budget;
  • Implementation strategy;
  • Communication plan;
  • Procurement strategy; and
  • Risk analysis.

In addition to preparing your Business Case, we can also connect you with other trusted professionals you may need on board to activate your project, including architects, quantity surveyors and grant writers.

If you’re a Western Australian local government and your project involves a major land transaction, we can also assist you by preparing the Business Plan you’ll require as part of the Local Government Act 1995, in order to seek public comment on your proposed project.

Anna and her team worked with us to prepare a detailed business case for a major infrastructure project for our club. The business case has delivered us a robust document to make a strong proposal for funding and gain strong political support. We particularly appreciated the practical advice provided during the project, helping us refine our project and business model to maximise the sustainability of the project. Anna and the team were professional and efficient, providing excellent service and advice.
