Final IAL Proposal - Essay Prowess

Final IAL Proposal

Read the Integrated Action Learning Project description linked in the Resources under the Required Resources heading.

In this assessment, submit your final IAL proposal. Remember, your IAL proposal is the culmination of all of your work in this class and in your program of study. This proposal should be a demonstration of the knowledge and expertise you have gained, and it should be well organized and concisely written. In the business environment, people do not generally have time for flowery language or documents that take forever to get to the point. Your proposal should be direct and clear and cover all outlined areas.

Reflection and Next Steps

  • What are the biggest areas of change from your initial project ideas about your project to your final project proposal?

  • What are the most important things you have learned so far in creating your final project proposal?
  • What is the most important takeaway for you from your experience in the integrated action learning project that you might apply to a future project in your field?
  • What do you hope to do with the knowledge you have developed in this class and your program of study?
  • Is there any advice you would give to someone starting this course or starting the BS IT program?

This likely resulted in a re-evaluation of and adjustment to your original thoughts and ideas about your proposal. As you revise and prepare to submit your final project proposal, write a reflection in which you address the following questions:
