The RFP Success™ Quiz

Stop the RFP confusion, it’s not that difficult!

Stop losing RFPs! In my 25 years of experience it is many time just one or two areas in the RFP process that are creating the “Nos” you are receiving. Take this simple, but in depth quiz and get the details that pinpoint your RFP areas of weakness and most importantly how to fix it.

For each question, rank yourself on a scale of 1-10, using this criteria: 

0 = Truly clueless, I really need help! 
4 = Uh-oh, I need to get better at this.
7 = I’m not doing too bad, but there’s definite room for improvement.
10 = I’m knocking it out of the park!
