PITCH Phase - Decision Making

As a Decision Maker for an Improvement Idea, you ensure that the right bases are covered in the business case, and determine whether to approve the Idea for implementation.  

AGREED streamlines your path to make decisions based on verified numbers and documented Stakeholder input.   

PITCH Phase - Review the pitched Idea details and its estimations to identify any gaps in its potential.

In the Overview tab

Step 1: Review the Idea Description at the top of the page along with Estimated/Calculated Value and Estimated/Calculated Risk

Step 2: Review the Problem (context) and Approach section as noted by the Idea Leader.

Step 3: Review the estimated/calculated personnel/non-personnel/ revenues expenses.
