The purpose of the project proposal is to describe how to automate or improve the automation of a specific business process, and then to explain how completing the project will positively affect the business.
Once a project proposal is accepted, project work can begin; therefore, a successful project proposal must include all of the information necessary for stakeholders to make a “go/no-go” decision, including a statement of scope, a list of the benefits you expect the proposed project to provide, and a rough estimate of how long it will take and how much it will cost to complete the project.
For this assignment, you will create a 3- to 4-page project proposal for the business scenario you selected earlier this week and that was approved by your instructor. The project proposal must include the following items:
- A project definition and scope that defines the project and articulates the business context for the project
- The problems that the proposed system is expected to solve (or opportunities the proposed project is expected to produce)
- The project objectives
- The project methodology or “game plan”
- A high-level schedule for completing the project scope
