Conclusion/recommendation: Given the comparison you have made, what recommendations would you make to the project/organisation? Is there something they should be doing differently for this section of the business case? What benefits would that change provide? Or perhaps there is something they should continue doing?

In your conclusion highlight the findings of your comparison and the recommendations. You can draw these from the last sentences of each paragraph you have written in step 4.
