Dec 4, 2018

7 Basic Steps for Cost Benefit Analysis

When making a crucial business decision it’s imperative that the concerned decision makers or officials understand the cost structure and associated benefits of their choice, be it establishing a new program or making changes to an existing program.  Here are a few basic steps to be followed while conducting a cost benefit analysis:

Set the basic framework for cost benefit analysis: Specify the needs of the program, policy changes, and the current status quo.

Identify and categorize costs and their associated benefits: It is important to label costs and their benefits as- direct, indirect, tangible, and intangible in order to ensure that you understand the effects of each cost factor and its’ benefit.

Project costs and benefits over a definite period: Gauge how costs and the associated benefits change every year.

Monetize the cost and their benefits: Ensure you measure costs and benefits in the same unit.
