Bid Desk Transformation


The Challenge

In an increasingly complex and competitive world, the traditional waterfall bid process can be slow, costly, and misaligned with the needs of your business. This leads to missed opportunities, wasted resources and a stretched workforce.

Our proprietary Dynamic Lead to Award methodology combines the Lean 6 sigma approach with MIT' latest research on Dynamic Work Design. The result: tailor-made Bid Desk Capabilities that elevates your bidding process, eliminates waste and gives your proposal teams more time to produce high-quality work

        Maturity Assessment

Your assessment is done in 2 steps. We begin with an evaluation of your bidding capabilities, strategic business objectives, business development strategy, operational constraints and organizational structure. Next we benchmark your capabilities against our 5-phase maturity framework and provide actionable insights.

         Lead to Award Process Design

Our proprietary Dynamic Lead to Award (DL2A) design process goes beyond the traditional waterfall method.  We will design agility and flexibility in your workflow and deliver a customized roadmap for your specific situation targeting the gaps between your current "As-is" State versus the  desired "To-Be" state.
