Discussion 1: Compare and Contrast the Four Models for Proposal DevelopmentWhen developing and implementing a grant proposal, the grantee must consider the project structure and four models for proposal development. Understanding this framework helps to fine tune the proposal and ensure that consideration has been given to selecting the appropriate resources required to carry out the project.
There are four models that can be used for proposal development and implementation: individual, consultative, cooperative, and collaborative. Working as an individual may be sufficient for smaller projects or a pilot. However, the consultative, cooperative, and collaborative models may be required to carry out more complex work. Each of these models involve careful consideration of the required level of resources, collaboration, and partnerships.
In preparation for this Discussion, consider the four models of proposal development as well as when each type of design is appropriate. Review this week’s Learning Resources that focuses on these models. Reflect upon the characteristics of persuasive writing learned in Module 2.
Post the following to the Discussion board:
- In a 2- to 3-slide PowerPoint presentation with recorded voiceover, compare and contrast the four models of proposal development (individual, consultative, cooperative, and collaborative) and how each model would work in your grant-funded project. Persuade your classmates why your choice of one of these four models is most appropriately aligned with your proposed project.
