Implications for the Business Case

There is much to learn from these initiatives for the designers of business cases for new integration initiatives. All of the designers and builders we studied faced significant obstacles and complex problems. The many successes that we found were not the result of applying simple formulas or simply taking advantage of fortuitous circumstances. Instead the successful results followed from a combination of opportunities, leadership, careful planning, and coordinated, sustained effort. We also identified some more specific elements of successful strategies that can help guide business case development.
