"The New Normal: Strategies for Tomorrow's Market"
How does industry survive in the “New Normal”, dealing with challenges such as:
Budget Constraints. Budget cuts, reorganizations, and layoffs are the "new normal" for the foreseeable future, as agencies consider multi-year cost reduction strategies. How will that affect our bid decisions, pricing, and win strategies in the future?
Methodology Modernization. Like all industries, how do we evolve to meet the challenges of the new normal? Can we learn lessons from others, like software development or the ancient Norse cultures, to approach BD challenges with a conquering spirit and in more effective and agile ways?
Stakeholder Expectations. What do today’s Contracting Officers want? How do we align our business strategies with the needs of our customers? How do we ensure our proposals are responsive?
Bid Strategies. How do you carry the corporate vision into bid decisions and strategies? What is important for capture and proposal success? What procurement trends and lessons learned can you draw upon in the future?
Although challenging, the "new normal" also brings exciting potential and opportunities. Join us in November to explore how the business development industry can face these challenges going forward. We’ve packed our agenda with new and insightful topics, delivered by an impressive team of speakers, who are ready to share industry best practices, thought-provoking ideas, innovations, and new developments shaping the future of our profession and the industry.
