Plan B -
When Do You Execute It?

So, you get to the
Red Team Review, you’ve used up 2/3 or 3/4 of the proposal schedule, and 4 of
the 6 volumes are scored RED, as in ‘start over - these are in really bad
shape!’ As the Proposal Manager, what do you do now to recover? Didn’t you
see this coming, and shouldn’t you have put "Plan B” in place long before
this? How do you know when to execute a Plan B? This presentation will
examine the ‘classic’ telltale signs (along the proposal development process)
that are indicators of an impending disaster.
More importantly, it will suggest a half dozen tried and true "Plan B”
options that can be employed to overcome failing proposal situations.
