Describe the organization’s current situation and any current or potential future problems. How does it affect the organization’s mission (i.e., we are spending more than we need to on IT costs; we are currently at risk for an audit)? Try to connect these issues to the business at large. Besides having to deal with these issues within your own department or team, what is the greater impact? How does the current situation affect your company? Include a brief statement of any company mandates or new government regulations that require policies, education, or processes not currently in place.
