Purchasing a project solution versus building one internally is becoming more common as organizations focus on implementing projects quicker and try to avoid re-inventing the wheel.

Selecting a vendor through a Request for Proposal (RFP) process doesn’t always guarantee that the solution the vendor proposed, and you selected, really meets the project’s needs and stakeholder’s expectations. Project teams make the mistake of jumping straight to the proposal portion of their project lifecycle before clearly defining their needs. The resulting RFP sent to vendors is vague and fails to communicate the critical requirements vendors need to propose accurate solutions.

Vendors have little choice except to make many assumptions regarding what they think the project needs are and base their proposals on these, often times, false assumptions. Because the project requirements are so vague, almost any vendor solution appears to adequately address the need.

Solutions Cube Group’s one hour recorded Webinars address many relevant project issues. Join them for this presentation and learn how to build RFPs that spell out the complete needs of your project and improve the accuracy and completeness of your vendor responses.

In thisone hour recordedWebinar participants learn about:

  • 3 Critical Success Factors of the RFP process
  • The components of the RFP process lifecycle
  • • The anatomy of a Request For Proposal document
  • Characteristics of the successful RFP

In the journey to enable the customer to achieve their business objectives and goals, understanding the overall strategy and vision is a key element.

Once that is understood, the level of detail required to enable that change within the organisation becomes much greater.

The business changes will drive requirements within the organisation, as will various stakeholders and other groups.

Understanding, validating and constantly checking progress against these requirements is a key step to ensuring the direction taken is correct.

The key techniques and tools covered are:

  • Facilitation Techniques
    • Being an effective facilitator
    • Planning and guiding proceedings effectively
  • Requirements Discovery Process
    • Identifying system requirements
    • Needs and desires for a system or application
    • Functions, features and constraints

This webinar introduces the key elements required to ensure comprehensive requirements gathering.
