About the Book

Completed on:05/30/2015

Review Rating:4 stars.Reviewed By Roy T. James for Readers’ Favorite

Effective Proposal Writing: Making Words Impact Reviewers by Dave Erickson gives a good insight into the most important part of a project, the proposal. However well conceived a project may be, one will never be able to have a budget to begin the work until a proposal is made. The reviewers assess a project, based on the proposal. Naturally therefore, the project having the best proposal gets the best attention and the best budget. The book then dwells at length on the points to be considered for making a proposal - the importance of gathering information, studying the intent, defining the budget, refining the plan and making a review - being some of the points covered. The importance of reexamining the proposal after a certain time delay is also mentioned, which generally is required to avoid any relevant area being overlooked.Effective Proposal Writing: Making Words Impact Reviewers by Dave Erickson is a practical guide and reference in this critical area. As an important step, the author mentions the importance of independent re-examination. Says the author, “Distrust everything you’ve written, uncover every mistake, correct spelling, question every assumption, dispute every fact, and you will have polished your work to the essential form.” Any engineer or manager involved in executing major works or projects can understand the critical nature of a proposal, a seemingly simple task with unimaginable ramifications. The author has produced a wonderful guide to ease the job of making a proposal, while at the same time offering tips on how to do it error free. Follow the steps, finish and submit.
