Propose stage

The propose stage commences when the concept statement is approved.

A feasibility options analysis and/or business case is developed to further evaluate and justify the proposed investment.


The feasibility options analysis can be undertaken initially to identify at a high level what solution options are feasible before a full detailed business case.

The business case undertakes detailed options analysis, presenting a recommended solution and the expected benefits of the solution.

It provides the scope, constraints and assumptions for project work, as well as the estimated costs, resourcing and timing for a preferred approach.

The outcome of this stage is the decision to fund the investment and approve project initiation.
