Analytical Business Case – Banana Industry Strategic Investment Plan (2014)

The Analytical Business Case (ABC) is a formal assessment process that draws from a range of tools to provide rigour and comparison between competing research investment areas and thus enhances the overall strategic investment plan (SIP). Two sets of analyses were prepared for the Horticulture Australia Banana Industry RD&E Plan: (1) review of past investments – to provide an insight into the performance of the Banana Industry SIP 2009-14 and help inform the SIP 2015-2019 (2) Benefit cost analysis of the new Strategic Investment Plan 2015-2019. The work was completed by Michael Clarke as part of the SIP preparation team led by Jenny Margetts.
