As the US military budgets shrink even more due to continuing resolutions, sequestration and economic pressures to be more affordable, our customers are demanding that we truly understand and adapt to their true needs and align our value proposition directly to those needs for affordable mission performance.
We are also seeing proposal timelines as short as 30-day deliveries, so it is critical that we fully understand the needs and value metrics of our customers BEFORE the RFP (or even the draft RFP).  This presentation explores ways to achieve this in a proactive way, leveraging tangible models that capture the customer value proposition and guide the capture process with focus and confidence.
This journey applies equally to new capture efforts, and is becoming equally critical for retaining existing contracts (or worse yet, for affordability-based re-competition).
