by Beth Wingate - Today companies are trying to make the most of every dollar to increase their competitive edge. Even a small decrease in overhead costs or increase in productivity can make big difference. In their Nov. 20, 2013 webinar, Lisa and Brenda decomposed a budget for developing a 30-day proposal and a 10-day proposal for small, medium, and large companies and provided recommendations for decreasing costs, while also streamlining workflow, effectively using automation, and working smarter not harder.
They described how they implement management best practices like Agile, Information Technology Infrastructure Library® (ITIL), and Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBoK), and commonly used tools and technology to generate cost savings.
Doing more with less does not mean longer hours for less pay, but rather leverages continuous process improvement, teamwork, creativity, and ongoing training to result in long-term savings.

by Bob Lohfeld - Have you ever had a subcontractor kill your bid? Surprisingly, it’s not all that infrequent that a subcontractor can do you in.
Here are some of the situations we have seen this year from companies who have called us for help, generally after it is too late to fix the problem. Since many of these teaming nightmares could have been prevented with some good counseling earlier in the bidding process, I thought I would share some of these with you and also offer advice that you can use to keep these problems from happening to you.
