Project Writing: how to plan a project proposal from A to Z
- You need to be proficient in written & spoken English
The course is for those who want their project proposals approved and funded by e.g., grant agencies. You could be a leader of an NGO, an aspiring entrepreneur, a representative of a public institution, or someone coming from academia.
The course will focus not on any one grant specifically, but rather on how to build a project proposal that is logical and understandable universally.
Lots of people are wondering how to write a project proposal. Before we start discussing all dos & don’ts, let us be honest – it is not an easy thing to do.
I've written hundreds of various project proposals, yet I have been struggling and feeling demotivated for a long time. Sounds familiar? Well, you are not the only one.
However, my troubles went from very big to very manageable when I found a simple method to beat any proposal. This course will reveal that secret 6-step recipe to you.
To be brief: it all boils down to proper planning & project visualisation before the actual proposal writing starts. Not sure what I mean?
Look at the summary of how we go about this:
Framing the project problem (i.e. what do we want to solve)
Understanding & researching the problem
Laying the project’s logical framework & sketching out ideas for activities (i.e. what could be the solutions)
Visualising the proposal (A to Z)
Getting relevant feedback & making revisions
Finalising the project plan & only then starting to write
This may seem like a lot to do before proposal writing. Yet, these prior steps will save you time, nerves, and motivation when the writing process starts. So much so, that in the end you will end up spending less time in total.
In other words, the project plan will have the key details, and you will just need to elaborate on those when writing. No more making stuff up as you go.
