Investment Logic Map
An Investment Logic Map (ILM) articulates visually and on a single page the logical story that underpins a proposed investment. The ILMs focal point is about a clear and shared understanding of the problems that prompted a desire to invest in the first place. As such the ILM helps to avoid solutioneering and forms an important foundation for a robust business case.
Frequently, projects are founded on a predetermined solution or are simply incomplete to address the full extent of the problems. These investments started with a poor understanding of the problems and whether they are actually worth solving which is a major cause of investments failing to generate value.
Our clients find that the ILM shapes their thinking early one before a decision to invest is made and that it helps them to define the correct and full scope of changes and assets to be invested in.
"The Investment Logic Map is a simple and practical approach that saves time and has a high impact for minimal cost" State of Victoria Department of Treasury and Finance.
