Proposals with the Competitive Edge

“It was easy to implement the WordTask approach to writing once
we returned to work. The benefit to making the changes was great.
We train new staff to see the light of the WordTask approach.”
– Greg Mason, Prairie Research Associates

Writers of proposals can often lose track of the central objective of the document by burdening the reader with information that is not well designed or explained. In this course, you’ll learn how to build a winning proposal on a solid competitive strategy, one that organizes all of the project or product specifications under a single, clear purpose. You’ll learn how to write proposals with a process that keeps you on track and on time!

This course can also be customized to the specific proposal format used by your organization, based on an analysis of your documents prior to the session.

Who Should Attend

  • Anyone who is part of the research, preparation, and production phases of the proposal-writing process. Senior reviewers of proposal drafts.
