I will need two separate short papers for this business case. I need to submit one paper for Module 6 showing the first 5 steps of the business case. Then I need to submit a following paper for Module 7 showing step 6. They will both build off each other. Therefore, I am submitting them together as a question. The break point between the two papers is denoted by asterisks. My professor has a certain style that he likes our papers to be in. I will supply an example of a past paper in the attachments.
Read (1) “Building Better Business Cases for IT Investments” (Ward et al., 2008). Develop a benefits table along with first five (5) steps for an IT project using the framework from the first reading.
Here is the option:
Use the NYU case provided, NYU Langone Medical Center Goes Paperless
In making your benefits analysis for your business case, follow the six steps approach by Ward et al. (2008) closely. Your analysis should be presented in the same paper format as you have used in the previous modules. Labeling steps 1 through 5 will be helpful to the reader:
Step 1: Define Business Drivers and Investment ObjectivesFILLER TEXT Step 2: Identify Benefits, Measures, and OwnersFILLER TEXT Step 3: Structure the BenefitsFILLER TEXT Step 4: Identify Organizational Changes enabling BenefitsFILLER TEXT Step 5: Determine the Explicit Value of each BenefitFILLER TEXT Note: Step 6, Costs and Risks analyses will be done in Module 7

Provide your benefits table similar to Figure 5 from the main reading, Building Better Business Cases for IT Investments (Ward et al., 2008, p.11)
A table of your assumptions for the benefits you identified and estimated
Summary of Learning
Note: The page limitation for the first stage of the business case is two (2) pages, plus references, visuals, and learning summary. I will provide a sample paper to reference the style that my professor wants.
Building on Module 6, read “Measuring and Reducing Total Cost of Ownership” (Woodward, 2016). Use the TCO framework from the reading to help structure and estimate Total Costs of Ownership (TCO) along with your ROI calculation. Also identify risks associated with the IT initiative along with a completed risk assessment.
Within Step 6: Identify Costs (TCO), Risks, and calculate ROI
Estimate TCO using “Measuring and Reducing Total Cost of Ownership” (Woodward, 2016) along with this TCO and ROI template (Note: Most cost numbers need to be researched and estimated along with your assumptions made)
Identify and assess risks using the matrix introduced in the Module Slides
Visuals for Step 6 (required)
- Provide TCO (provide explanation and assumption for each cost estimation) and ROI Table
Provide Risk Assessment Table
Once the above is done, combine your part 1 (from Module 6) and part 2 analyses into a complete business case. Here is the overall structure of your business case:
