Could someone please let me know if do POC (proof of concept) is correct or should I use does in the below sentence? Does sound correct to me but according to language rules, should use a singular verb.

Put extra effort to search for the best sources of information, and do POC before making a critical decision.

    If you think do should be conjugated, what is the subject for the verb? What do you think the grammatical role of put is in this sentence?

  • "Does" is the 3rd person singular but the subject implied the imperative sentence is "you", and that takes "do".

In this case you would use "do POC" because you are being told to do something as an action.

I / you / they "do"

He / she / it "does"

This will go over it in more detail!
