For your reflection papers on economic evaluation, you should report your thoughts on reading the two references above. But we believe your future work will benefit from a cursory acquaintance with the third reference also, which is longer but simpler to read. Regard the third article as a bonus and if you spend some time on it, do include some of your thoughts on it also in your reflections!
It gives you an impression of the type of assessment/argumentation for IS investments which are common in firms, and which you may have to do if you work as an employee or consultant. The article is available on the Internet. There are obviously more recent manuals you could buy or get from the major consultancies, but we think this is fairly representative of what is often meant by a "business case.
