Project Proposal Template Serves as Guide to Project Justification

Patrick Avery

Under the status of "oldie but goodie" is where we find this Project Proposal Template in the Knowledge Network. This simple, three-page template developed by IT Business Edge covers the basics of top-level project justification. For larger projects, it should be accompanied or followed by more intensive financial projections, but for smaller projects, these key points will prepare a prioritization committee or group of managers to green-light a proposed project for formal business requirements and functional specs.


Key points covered in the basic form include:

  1. Business needs met by the proposed project.
  2. High-level functionality, as envisioned by the business.
  3. Post-launch operational costs and considerations.
  4. Key assumptions and corresponding risk.
  5. Sign-off by project sponsors and key senior managers.


Here are some other project-related documents in the Knowledge Network.
