IT Management and Business should discuss the report with
the person who prepared it. When they are satisfied with the
accuracy and completeness, the report should be distributed
to key stakeholders. A meeting should be convened to discuss
the report and path forward. At this meeting it may be possible
to resolve some of the conflicts and inconsistencies.
It is important that the meeting is attended by people who
can make decisions about the initiation of a project. For
example, who has the authority to commit resources and money?
Who might have the authority to delay a project so that this
one can start? Who can commit business resources?
An amended report should be produced and distributed once the meeting has concluded. This should detail the agreed path forward. It should also indicate who should fill key roles in the project such as Sponsor, Project Manager, Business Analyst, Business Representatives.
