Team motivation and engagement in times of change
We’ve had a lot of change in our team over the past months – people leaving and joining at all levels. From your experience, do you have any useful strategies for keeping existing and valued team members motivated and engaged in this situation?
What makes a successful bid?
In your expert opinion what makes a successful bid the winner from the loser, as it seems doing the actual job on the ground seems to be almost void.
To home base or not to home base
I am group Bid manager for a Print solutions company currently going through acquisition.
The new company are looking to have all the Bid Team based in their Head Office, this will mean that the existing team will be made redundant and their less experienced team will be in place to respond to the complex bids and Public Sector requests we currently work on.
Having worked in many sectors for a fair few large corporates I am of the opinion that the location of the Bid Team is not the issue, for me it is flexibility and adaptability which gives the greater success rate.
I am proposing to the new company that the existing team could be home based and have legs.
Are there any case studies out there or based on your experience what are the industry best practices?
Proposal software benefits
Given the number of bid proposal software systems on the market these days, what are the key benefits of proposal automation as you see them and what, if any, are the risks for bid professionals of implementing such software?

The difference was 23.8% in 2015, so while the gap is closing, there is a long way to go for parity to be achieved across genders.Find out more All News
