Risk Management for Proposal Managers
Dealing with opportunities and risks in the right way during the bid process greatly influences your chances of winning an RFP as well as its profit margin. It is therefore key for bid/proposal managers to identify and assess opportunities and risks and develop strategies to reduce risks’ negative financial impact.
This course provides participants with indispensable methods and uses practical examples, so they can recognise risks and opportunities early on in the proposal process and deal with them appropriately. Participants are able to put what they learn into practice quickly with the help of checklists and tools. The course is designed for bid and proposal managers as well as sales representatives.
