The RFP Success® Assessment

Do Better. Win More.

Are you tired and frustrated because you are responding to RFPs but not having much success? OR, maybe you are pretty darn successful, but want to get even better?

Many times it is just one or two areas in the RFP process that is creating the “Nos” you are receiving. Take this simple assessment to pinpoint your RFP areas of weakness, and most importantly, how to fix it.

For each question, rank yourself on a scale of 1-10, using this criteria: 

0  = Truly clueless, we really need help! 
4  = Uh-oh, we need to get better at this.
7  = We're not doing too bad, but there’s definite room for improvement.
10 = We're  knocking it out of the park!

Once you take the assessment, check your inbox for your resulting score and some important “next steps”, and let’s get you on the path to progress!
