Getting Started

Initiating the improvement


  • You need to justify why we should spend the money, what is the benefit, who benefits, and particularly for a larger project, how have you validated that your assumed benefit is in fact correct?

  • Have you considered alternatives to achieve your desired outcome, is this the best solution?

  • Have you shown how you will complete the project, from obtaining quotes to implementation? (or getting it far enough to engage professionals for larger projects – in this case as well as justifying the request for funds, you need to justify request for someone’s time)

  • Have you demonstrated reliability, to the point we can trust you to do what you say you will do?

  • Where relevant, how are you ensuring that you or others will continue to provide time and input necessary to yield value?
