CSK's Global BidMaster™ Program (online)
(zur Zeit als öffentliches Training nur in Englisch verfügbar
for public training, currently only available in English
als individuelles Training auch in Deutsch erhältlich)
The ultimate professional curriculum in the bid/proposal space
Designed for new hires and seasoned professionals, this program framework provides all the methods, tools and structures to cover the entire proposal process, from RFP analysis to document production, from proposal office installation to proposal presentation.
Spanning 12 weeks, 10 modules contain loads of hands-on examples and best practice guidance to develop winning proposals — all aligned with APMP's Body of Knowledge of APMP (Association of Proposal Management Professionals) as well as with CSK's BidMaster™ framework.
CSK BidMaster™ Program - Course Flyer
For everyone in the bid/proposal space: for experienced professionals as well as for new hires
It is for everyone involved in proposal development, regardless of the industry (bid/proposal managers, writers, contributors, coordinators).
On-line and interactive
Modules are between 60 and 180 minutes, depending on the topic. Participants can either book the entire series (at a discounted rate) or select specific modules.
The format combines the cost benefit of a typical web-based solution with the advantages of an on-site training. As opposed to other typical online training concepts, it provides interactive access to a real trainer delivered over the web. This means participants can resolve issues in real time and comprehension and retention is increased. To compensate with the potential disadvantage of the fact that you might not be able to attend the session, we record all sessions for you so that you still have access to the same content, too.
Book Single Sessions or the Entire Series
Participants can either book the entire series (at a discounted rate) or select specific modules.
Note: In our broadcasting studio, we are using the most advanced tools and techniques to provide you with an outstanding webinar experience. This makes sure, you will be leveraging your preciouse time to acquire lots of best practices while enjoying each session.
