The organization’s identity
The organization’s identity shall be masked in the proposal and the proposal shall be free of any proprietary or closely-held company information, as well as any other information that could reveal the organization’s identity.
This is not a proposal to do a study to identify issues and propose solutions.
The purpose of any proposal is to sell a product, service, idea, etc. In this case, you are selling a set of recommendations aimed at resolving issues associated with your organization’s ability to optimally monitor and control project finances. Address your proposal to your organization’s decision makers.
Put yourself on the receiving end of any proposal. What would you want to know?
- What are you selling?
- How does it apply to me?
- Why should I buy it? What benefits do I receive?
- What actions do I need to take to realize the benefits?
- How long will it take to realize the benefits?
- How much will it cost?
For the purposes of this assignment, the last two questions (time and cost) should be addressed, at least, in relative terms. A detailed time and cost analysis is not required. However, if you intend to share the outcome with your organization, you might want to consider including a more detailed analysis at some point in time.
