You can use a Concept Proposal Document to identify the need or opportunity to improve a business function by highlighting where strategic goals are not being met or performance can be improved. The Concept Proposal should demonstrate that this is a worthwhile investment and identify potential impacts on systems, staff, and operations.

Here's are seven steps to help you build your Concept Proposal.
