The proposal project plan establishes the step-by-step plan for (re)solving the issue/problem/opportunity you’ve identified. The plan should be detailed, providing reader-users a thorough understanding of what is necessary to move successfully move forward. You’ll want to consider persuasion strategies, as discussed in Module 11, while following the necessary moves of a proposal project plan, discussed in Chapter 8 of our textbook:
1) Identify your overall solution
2) Provide a detailed step-by-step plan
3) Summarize the final deliverables or outcomes of your plan
While the project plan follows this intro, body, conclusion format, it can be helpful to consider headings and subheadings for this section. Using lists is also a useful strategy when creating the step-by-step plan. For example, your project plan might following this structure:
1. Step 1: Overall Summary of Step
2. Step 2: Overall Summary of Step
and so forth.
That’s just one suggestion, of course; but having that level of organization can make it easy for reader-users to follow your logic for the plan.
