Part 4. Justification
Justify why the recommended content strategy should be implemented. If appropriate, include why this particular strategy was selected over other alternatives. Where applicable, include any quantitative support for the strategy as well as the impact of not implementing the project. Consider framing your justification in terms of why and for whom and how much.
