I am not sure you will get that kind of thing. But I can tell you couple of things which we did to get approval. Basically we build a POC farm in sp16 and migrated the one site collection over there with fully 16 mode.then we present the comparison between current and future farm.we focus on following things

  1. User interface(how responsive it is)
  2. New sharing method
  3. Sharepoint boundaries
  4. Performance
  5. search improvement
  6. Workflow manager integration and advantages
  7. OOS connectivity and usage
  8. Data loss protection feature
  9. New social features
  10. Durable links
  11. Hybrid functionality
  12. MinRole topology
  13. Zero down patching

You can pick the features you are currently using and create same in 2016 and present as comparison to convince them.
