Unlocking AI’s Potential: Prompt Engineering Lessons-Learned Report for BD and Proposal Pros

We’re excited to share key insights from our new Lohfeld GenAI Prompt Engineering Lessons-Learned Report exploring prompt engineering for proposal professionals. Public Generative AI (GenAI) models like ChatGPT, Claude, Llama, Transformer-XL, and many others—as well as private platforms from Procurement Sciences, Rohirrim, and others—have incredible potential to transform proposal development. However, thoughtfully crafted prompts are crucial to guiding these public and private tools.

Through extensive hands-on testing, our seasoned proposal experts identified techniques to create prompts that yield tailored, strategy-aligned outputs versus generic text from AI. These experiments reveal prompt engineering best practices to maximize value from AI augmentation.

If you’re a BD, capture, or proposal professional looking to exploit GenAI, download the report to get an in-depth look at our team’s tests, refinements, and recommendations for engineering effective prompts. The report shares:

  • Context specifics that improved relevance
  • Ways to tap AI for differentiated text
  • Concise prompting approaches
  • Insights on the power of sequential interactions
  • Methods for specifying output formatting
  • …And more prompt engineering insights
