This course provides the "big picture" to anyone with the responsibility of developing and presenting a financial proposal for new equipment, staffing, reorganization, or additional resources.

First, we introduce the essential elements that are critical to a successful proposal. Without all of these, you are just wasting time and risk damaging your credibility.

Next is the selection of the type of proposal you want to make and making sure you include all of the relevant factors.

Then we must have a clear picture of where we are now so we can persuade the eventual proposal audience that we must move to somewhere else. We present this clear picture using statistics drawn from historical data to describe trends and make realistic forecasts of the future requirements.

Finally, preparation of the proposal means careful selection of words to use and a carefully crafted strategy of presenting them in the best sequence for maximum effectiveness because we only have one chance to make a good 'first impression.'
