1. Provide the context in which the project exists. If the project is for a specific organisation, discuss the organisations background first and then discuss the project within the context of the organisation. This section must provide a sufficient briefing on the project background and any technology it incorporates such that the reader will understand the context and importance of your project. Remember, do not assume any prior technical knowledge. All technical terms must be explained and all acronyms defined.
2. Describe the purpose of your project. Explain to your reader what problem(s) you are trying to solve and why it is important to do so. Keep in mind that the purpose of the report you are writing is to persuade whoever you need to fund your project, that your project is worth funding from a ‘Why should I care?’ point of view and also for the anticipated intrinsic and intangible benefits gained by the organisation due to the deployment of your application.
3. Discuss how you plan to address the problem outlined above. Make sure you clearly describe how your proposed solution will address the problems(s) you’ve discussed.
