Hi,

I'm a software engineering student and currently learning software project management for a module.

I'd be thankful to anyone who can share a sample of a "software project proposal" which has basic content such as cost estimation, scheduling, risk management, etc.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Praveenaj,

I'd suggest trying a BOSCARD, which stands for:

  • Background
  • Objectives
  • Scope
  • Constraints
  • Assumptions
  • Risks
  • Deliverables

This is an effective and straightforward way of setting the objectives and scope of a project and providing this information in an easily digestible format.

You can find more details and a BOSCARD template here: https://www.projectsmart.co.uk/boscard.html
