Stop Wasting Time on Proposals!
“Time” has been one of the most talked about topics since the ancient Egyptians established the 24-hour day a long time ago. Time continues to be a popular and increasingly diverse topic. My recent Google search yielded a whopping 9 million hits on time management subjects ranging from time-and-motion studies to self-help. It is no coincidence that when asked about the most significant issues and challenges proposal professionals face, the responses most often mentioned are related to time. “Not enough time to respond”…. “No respect for proposal schedule deadlines”…. “Limited resources that increase time pressures,” and the list goes on, and on, and on.
