Remember to consider the scalability of your project. For example, you may wish to write about Barnes & Noble, but that would require hundreds of pages. However, you could choose to focus on how Barnes & Noble has managed to survive the Internet age when Borders crumbled. Use this opportunity to gain valuable feedback from your peers and instructor on focusing your project. Keep in mind that your capstone project must result in evidence-based recommendations, takeaways, or next steps.
Note: Successful completion of an acceptable proposal will facilitate a smooth transition into your capstone course and help you make timely progress toward the completion of your degree. In other words, the better you define your project now, the easier it will be to continue making progress on your project.
In fact, you must earn at least a 70 out of 100 on the u05a2 assignment, Final Capstone Proposal – Individual, to pass this course. If you do not earn at least 70 on that assignment, your instructor will force your course grade to “F” and you will have to retake this course in order to prepare an effective capstone proposal. Thus, taking time on this assignment is paramount. In addition, fear not, the u04d2 discussion, Capstone Project Scope Statement, will help you further refine the scope, the area that poses the biggest challenge for some learners.
