Mel Lester wrote a fantastic article for Axium 411 about proposal strategy.

Thanks Mel.

This is definitely one for my vault.

If you’re poring over the Request for Proposals trying to learn what the client really wants, you’re looking in the wrong place.

Yet amazingly, many proposals are prepared with little more insight than what can be gleaned from the RFP.

My advice: Never trust the RFP!
