Bid Framework Health Check


Unsure how to compete with established corporate bid teams?

Is there more you could do to improve your win rate?

If you can relate to any of the following, you are not alone. Many bid teams find themselves struggling with:

  • Heavy pressure to achieve performance targets
  • Huge workload and long hours, resulting in staff burnout
  • Low win rate despite best efforts
  • Lack of clear bidding processes leading to confusion and frustration
  • Too much, too little or badly organised content hampering the writing process

Hitting close to home? If so, your company’s bidding function might not be working at it’s optimum. Check your score using the Bid Barometer, which uses a short questionnaire to measure your bidding capability against our Bid Competency barometer tool

The tool is designed to help you understand how your bidding capability stacks up against competitors and industry leaders. The Bid Barometer tool generates a 12 page no-obligation, completely free report, which will be emailed to you at conclusion. The report helps you understand what areas can be improved, and where best practice may be suitable.
