Your success has not gone unnoticed. You have been asked by the Board of Directors whether you have any ideas for strategies that can take the organization forward in its pursuit of pay-for-value. As it turns out, you have an idea for a technological innovation you have been reading about, but it requires a significant capital investment to make it happen. You have a strong feeling that your idea could make a big difference, but you know you can’t go to the Board with just “feelings.” Your pitch must be grounded in facts and numbers; a plan that cannot demonstrate financially viable will never get approved. So, you need to present not just your strategy, but a budget to support that strategy.
