Requests for Proposals (RFPs) often are confusing, contradictory, or downright unintelligible. The impact on companies responding to such RFPs is substantial: You have to spend a great deal of time and energy trying to decode the RFP, and then adjusting your proposal accordingly.

The Q&A process therefore is an important (though often neglected) element of effective proposal management. However, getting the answers, you want is not as straightforward as it may appear.  

This webinar presents a concise, effective methodology for developing RFP questions that will give you a greater chance of getting the answers you want and need to make your proposals complete, compliant, and compelling—and, ultimately, successful.

You'll takeaway:

  1. A step-by-step formula for developing effective questions to get the best answer

  2. An understanding of what questions to ask and what not to ask

  3. How to safeguard your strategy when asking questions

  4. Implementing the answers and feedback in your proposal response
