  1. Define and execute a feasibility study that clearly and concisely describes the key alternative courses of action that will satisfy the business and functional requirements with an evaluation of their technological and economic feasibility. Identify required actions for the acquisition or development, and take into account scope and/or time and/or budget limitations.
  2. Review the alternative courses of action with all stakeholders, and select the most appropriate one based on feasibility criteria, including risks and cost.
  3. Translate the preferred course of action into a high-level acquisition/development plan identifying resources to be used and stages requiring a go or no-go decision.
