Issue: IT professionals often must develop project justifications on very short notice. As a result, they submit budget requests that dont contain the basic information decision-makers need. This fosters decisions based more on costs than organizational needs; and, subjective evaluations rather than thoughtful consideration of the facts.
Purpose: This tutorial is designed for IT professionals who must prepare a project budget justification, and do it quickly. It covers the most basic information that is needed and is presented to facilitate relatively fast preparation of a justification. This is not a substitute for a comprehensive "business case", budget "proposal", or "cost-benefit analysis".
Objective: The intent is to help you prepare a justification that stands above the rest, using a five-step approach. Key points to remember when you are writing and reviewing your document are also included.
