What are Better Business Cases?

The Better Business Cases (BBC) methodology is a powerful structured conversation. Mandatory for all capital expenditure proposals that require Cabinet approval, BBC is now infiltrating other government departments and crown agencies, including DHBS, the TEC and several Councils.

BBC is a disciplined and structured approach to spending decisions, focusing on evidence-based analysis. It integrates neatly with other key management processes including policy, planning, risk management, procurement and service delivery review. Importantly, the process is scalable to the significance of the proposal – adding value, not cost and time.
