You will create a plan for a change initiative, describing it in your Business Brief and presenting it in your Change Vision Video. Think of your Business Brief as a summary document that could be used as a reference by the Board of Directors and think of your Change Vision Video as your pitch to the Board members to gain their support for your initiative.
