Simple ideas on measuring the business value of a feature

In an earlier comment, I've mentioned the need to make a clear case for the business value of features and design choices. Since features, and in general user-level choices, are easier to discuss with management than lower-level design choices, they could make for a good training :-) about thinking at the edge between software and business.
Here is an easy to read article offering some simple, yet practical suggestions: Identifying the Business Value of What We Do. On the same website, you'll also find some nice papers on usability, and a few more dealing with business issues and software design.
