Before you start PaperBuilding

Before you begin PaperBuilding it is vital to set the scope and objectives of any project, and set it in the context of the organisation’s overall business strategy and its ICT strategy.  We use the Project Brief Questionnaire (PBQ) as the vehicle to do this.

The PBQ is a set of headings we feel it is necessary to consider before launching into any information system development. If you collate the thinking for all the headings you have the basis of a proposal you can put to your board - the business case for the project.

Download a copy of Infoworks PBQ here.
