Your project must be large in scope- a basic bpa, or bpi-type of initiatives will not do. 2. your project must be strategically important- you cannot just say “i’ll do network modification”, or “i’ll write about an application that automates a data entry task”. 3. you must be able to analyze & model the business process that your project aims to improve (all it interventions support is, which, in turn, enables a business process). 4. you must be able to show the fit between your technology/is and the business. 5. you must be able to perform the analysis of the business process that will be impacted by your project- where the gains will come from, and in what form. 6. you should have access to the relevant data- every # you will input on your spreadsheet will be met with “why? how did you get this #?” question from me.
