The biggest learning curve in tendering is understanding the time, energy, and resources that go into creating a winning bid. 

The more planning you do before writing your bid, the easier you'll find it when you begin your response. This training will walk you through the steps of how to plan and manage your bid. From capture planning to forming a bid team (this doesn't necessarily need to be a full team, it could be one person if they have the right skills) to making key decisions. 

One of SDP's expert trainers will also show an example of a Bid Time Plan and how to complete it. 

Overview of what you will learn: 

  • What work can be done pre-tender to make the process of creating the bid less stressful 
  • How to make objective decisions while managing a bid 
  • How to create a bid time plan

At the end of the session, there will be an interactive Q&A session where you will have the opportunity to ask any burning questions you may have. As well as the chance to hear what other SME businesses in Scotland have to say.
