PTC 620: Proposal Writing - Elliot

Norbert ElliotInstructor: Dr. Norbert Elliot

Course Description: In any organization, your success depends on your ability to write persuasively. Today, proposal writing is an industry: divisions of organizations are devoted to a single aim: to win competitive awards through compelling documents. This course will prepare you for your role in that challenging world.

We will begin by exploring theories of persuasion from ancient to contemporary times, and we will continue our study through modern theories of stakeholder analysis. With this overview in mind, we will then dedicate ourselves to preparing a proposal for a specific audience. While we will analyze sample documents, our major emphasis will be on the development of a proposal that will, hopefully, be used by you in your own organization.
