Hello

 

I am trying to develop an abstract statement for a proposal plan that I have to write. The required length of the plan should be 18-20 pages. The company that I work for has designed the structure for proposal plans. The general rule is that only one person is designated for the proposal. My problem with that is if they could offer necessary opportunity to other who may be interested. In the long run this will be a project that the entire team will contribute to.

Unfortunately you are not in the position to question the way your company designates who will write up proposals. Although I do understand the reasoning behind your discontent, if you accepted the task you should dedicate yourself to the best you can offer. Without knowing the company or any of its procedures it is difficult to draw conclusions, however I can say that often times firms will designate these types of projects in order to seek out those with leadership qualities. Concentrate on your project, dedicate yourself to its success. If you expend your energies on wondering why a policy is a policy you are setting yourself up for indecision or worse, failure. With all due respect I edited your post, grammar, structure, etc. I say this to you because those aspects of the proposal are just as important as the content. Be sure to correct and edit the entire proposal before you submit it. The last thing you want are mistakes because they will be noticed.

Good Luck in your efforts !!!

There really is truth in the cliche that many heads are better than one. For the company to restrict leadership and growth opportunities for new projects is a self-defeating way to develop support for the projects. When only one person is involved in the planning phase, then the company is making a bet that that one person can sell all others who will need to support the project in order for it to succeed. This is difficult for even the most talented CEO to do.

The abstract statement has to describe in short what you propose to do. You already have the structure for the proposal plan specified by the company. Your abstract should cover all the aspects identified in the structure.

To give you more guidelines relating to what you propose, I would need know what your proposal is. Perhaps the time and effort you will need to prepare a writeup to convey such information through this discussion board, may be better utilized by you in writing the actual abstract.

Greenie1,

I am not sure what your question is.  Do you need help with writing an abstract? Or, do you need help with a work situation?

I can definitely help with the former, but with the latter, unless you have any type of authority to either change the policy or allow others to participate, there is not much you can do.

You can always talk to your supervisor or whomever designed the policy and ask them to change it.

I do hope it works out for you.

I guess I need help with a abstract statement
