Mgmt 254 business communication business proposal – first draft
The business proposal is a common tool used to convince business executives and leaders about an idea for improvement within an organization. They are also used when a new business initiative is seeking funding – either as a stand-alone business or within the confines of an existing organization.
The business proposal draft should be complete, including all components of a business proposal. This draft should be well-considered and ready for review by your peers and the instructor. Points will be deducted for incomplete work.
The Business Proposal is the major writing assignment in the course. You are to create and submit a formal proposal that suggests how to change something within an organization. This organization can be large or small, a place of employment now or in the past, or an organization to which the students belong. From past experiences, it is best to use a business with fewer than 200 employees, and one with which you have personal experience. It could be a place where you currently work or a place you have worked or volunteered in the past.
The change can be specific to a unit or can apply to the whole organization; it can relate to how important information is distributed, who has access to important information, how information is accessed, or any other change in practices the students see as having a benefit. The proposal should be directed to the person or committee with the power to authorize the change. However, if you are working within a large organization, and asking for a small organizational change, communicating with a CEO or president may not make the most sense. You need to think about who within the organization might be the best person for the type of change suggested.
