Can you explain the Shipley Method of Proposal Writing? Is it considered one of the best approaches?

There are so many ways to approach writing a proposal for a government RFP. Is the Shipley Associates method one of the best? Why?

Answer: The Shipley Method is focused on business proposal development. If you are looking to develop a proposal in response to a government RP, you might look at our collection of example proposals on this site (most are for government grants) and proposal development tutorial and a proposal template that takes the guess work out of developing your boilerplate proposal.

Don’t forget to check out great resources in our Proposal Writing Books category on writing a proposal available at Amazon. Again, check out our custom collection of real life funded proposal examples.
