How to get management buy-in for your idea

As I wrote before, "lack of budget" is most often an issue of priority, not funds.

In order to get attention, you will have to build trust, explain urgency, and communicate value:

  • Trust. Who are you and why should they trust you? Where is your idea coming from?
  • Urgency. Why this idea, now? What might happen if we don't act on it immediately? What might happen if the idea is ignored?
  • Benefit. What would this idea mean to our business? Our customers? Our ecosystem?

Read the following two articles for even more advice on getting buy-in for your idea:
