Video: Build a business case that will guide your project to success

Business case documents take hours of hard work but they often discarded after the pitch. This episode of Sanity Savers for IT executives explains how to turn the business case into one of the most important components of an IT project.

Take a look at that remote corner of your bookcase, and you may spot a dusty binder or two containing a long-forgotten business case document. Creating it required hours of hard work and maybe even a few heated exchanges with colleagues. But despite all that effort, there it sits — nestled between the books Getting the Most from MS DOS 3.0 and Punchcards: The Future Is Now. This episode of Sanity Savers for IT executives explains why your business case deserves better treatment and how you can turn it into one of the most important components of an IT project.

For those of you who prefer text to video, you can click the "Transcript" link underneath the video or you can read the two articles that this episode was based on: Building a better business case and The business case: What to do after the pitch.
