Choose an organization as the focus for a Project Proposal. The organization can be an existing company, nonprofit organization, religious organization, or governmental agency.

Project proposal examples include but are not limited to the following: Implementation of a new hiring process Construction of a new office building Development of a new software system Roll out of a new product or service Use the Internet to find a project plan template that is appropriate for the project plan you wish to propose. Write a few brief paragraphs to justify selecting this organization. Include the following: The organization’s name The purpose for this organization’s existence Why this organization is of interest to you A description of the project and its relationship to the organization’s business objectives Availability of organizational data: Avoid selecting an existing organization for which there is no publicly available historical data.
