Hello to all,

I would like to ask the question, what is the difference between a business case and a Project Initiation Document?

Thank you.
Neil

If you are referring to PRINCE2.

The Project Initiation Document is a set of documents. Created during the Initiating a Project Process.

Documents include the Project Plan, Management Strategies and the refined Business Case. The Outline Business Case is created earlier on during the starting up a project process. This forms part of the Project Brief.

I'd recommend a study guide or watch a video like this:

Should answer any fundamental questions about the methodology.
