Conclusions

The process of writing proposals is varied and complex, and since virtually all the professional world's work is initiated or changed by proposals, there is really no way to avoid writing them. There may be some consolation, however, in knowing that proposals are often written with others, or collaboratively. We see evidence of this tendency in the profiles of professionals in Chapter 1, and we have taken up the topic of collaborative writing in detail in Chapter 5.

But as demanding as the work is, writing a successful proposal—convincing a potential sponsor that the proposer can recognize a problem and suggest reasonable, effective ways of addressing or solving it—can be one of the more rewarding tasks of professional life.
