If It’s Broke, Fix It!

Govplace’s Tina Scogin recently spoke at the 2016 APMP Conference in a session titled, “If It’s Broke, Fix It!”

Here is a brief summary of the session:

Proposal leadership isn’t easy. You are expected to make the process work, as long as no one else has to change. Working with “we’ve always done it that way” writers, reviewers, and stakeholders can be maddening. It’s a wonder more proposal managers aren’t in jail… for murder. The struggle is real. This workshop covers strategies for transitioning nay-sayers into advocates, review examples of successful lessons learned with tangible results, and strategize solutions to challenges that won’t overwhelm the very individuals you want to help change. Come share, discover, and inspire each other.
