Making the Business Case

Making the Business Case



Presentation and discussion of business case proposals. I will give some examples in the prior class.

Each person will identify a technology solution for a business problem. You will make your case for funding.

· State any assumptions you feel are necessary.

· Let the class know what role they should assume (the decision maker).

· Develop your answer in a few slides. Submit on blackboard. Use power point – send the file not a link. 

· You will “make your case” to the class. The financials are a key piece in making your case. You should plan on about 30 minutes including questions and comments from the class. 

· At the end you will ask the class for their vote – up or down to fund your solution.
