Keep it to a page max, define the problem, define the solution (obviously,
it should be the solution being proposed), define the benefit from using
the solution in quantifiable terms, and if possible, include an endorsement
from the user of the solution being described.
I know we were talking about *business cases* on this list before, but what
about *case studies*?
An RFP came in that asked for two *case studies* of projects similar to the
one in which the client is going to engage.
Any suggestions on how to write these case studies? Number of words?
Presentation of information?
I'm thinking 500 words. Either in brief "white paper" format or in Client/
Problem/ Answer/ The Alpha Difference format.
