Organizations with effective business development processes gain the following benefits: • Reduced costs and risks of capturing business • Increased productivity and staff morale • Improved sales forecasting • Increased management visibility and control • More competitive solutions and proposals The most successful organizations in any market or selling environment innovate and improve framework processes based upon fundamental principles. Less effective organizations follow tightly defined processes, but limited understanding of the fundamental principles reduces their flexibility to adapt to market and customer shifts. The least effective organizations lack consistent processes and fail to understand fundamental principles. Help senior managers design a single, flexible, and scalable business development process based on industry best practices. Organizations with a single business development process eliminate confusion about which process applies. If you have multiple processes, individuals will repeatedly rationalize why the more disciplined process does not apply to a given opportunity. Business development managers that permit ad hoc processes and rely on heroes for success are consistently less successful. A flexible process can be adapted to different types of selling environments, markets, opportunities, and customer requirements. A scalable process can be adapted to differing sizes of opportunities, schedules, resources, and budgets. As with our Proposal Guide and Capture Guide, these guidelines are based upon fundamental principles of our consulting practice: • Align your process to the customer’s process. • Use a disciplined business development process that emphasizes planning. • Schedule to the process and maintain schedule discipline. • Base your strategy and tactics on the customer’s perspective. • Maintain customer focus through every step. • Use Decision Gate reviews to prompt senior management to decide whether to advance the opportunity to the next phase or end the pursuit. • Use Color Team reviews to improve the quality of the business development work product, whether an account plan, pursuit plan, capture plan, strategy, solution, or proposal. Help individuals understand the business development process. Whether highly experienced or new to business development, individuals must use common vocabularies and definitions to work effectively and efficiently as a team. Likewise, winning complex, competitive opportunities requires a cohesive, coordinated business development team working with a common understanding of the work process, individual roles, and required tasks. This Business Development Lifecycle Guide is designed to help individuals on your marketing, capture, and proposal teams reach a common understanding of business development process best practices and terms. These fundamental best practices are readily applicable and adaptable when selling to governments and businesses in domestic, international, and export markets; when selling services and products; and in situations requiring security clearances. Individuals often use common terms with different implicit meanings. Common terms are defined to support cohesive, effective business development teams. Record best practices in a clear, linear order. At Shipley Associates, we have observed, studied, and recommended business development best practices since 1972. We endeavor to follow these principles in our consulting practice, teach them in our training practice, apply them in our business development process re-engineering practice, and share them in our series of Guides. This Business Development Lifecycle Guide describes a business development process comprising 96 steps divided into seven phases. We urge business development professionals to adapt, scale, and tailor this 96-step process to the types and sizes of business opportunities encountered by their organizations.

The most effective organizations are 10 times more effective in winning competitive new business than industry averages, based on several industry benchmarking studies dating back to the late 1980s. Researchers have concluded that the most effective organizations follow defined framework processes based upon fundamental principles. Less effective organizations follow defined processes but lose sight of principles that help them adapt to individual opportunities. The least effective organizations lack consistent processes, or defined principles, and rely instead on valiant efforts of heroes following ad hoc processes. Help individuals position their organizations to capture competitive business opportunities Guidelines are based on fundamental principles revealed by business development research: • Align capture activities with the customer’s analysis and selection process. • Influence the customer to prefer your organization and solution early, and maintain that preference through selection, award, and delivery. • Base your strategy on the customer’s perspective of reality. • Align your actions and messages throughout the business development cycle. • Use decision gate reviews of potential business opportunities for determining the best manner in which to proceed and color team reviews to improve quality of the product and outcome. Follow these principles to win more business, more effectively, economically, and consistently. Guide individuals in capture planning roles The structure for the Shipley Capture Guide originated with the Shipley Proposal Guide. While many capture planning principles were included in the Proposal Guide, clients repeatedly requested more specific advice. As organizations placed more individuals into capture planning roles, these individuals needed to understand how to adapt best practices and tools to their individual markets and opportunities. This Capture Guide is designed to be a quick reference for individuals assigned to be capture managers or to contribute to capture teams. Record capture management and planning best-practice guidelines At Shipley Associates, we have observed and recommended industry best practices in business development consulting, training, and process re-engineering since 1972. We endeavor to follow these guidelines in our consulting practice, teach them in our professional development practice, tailor them in our process practice, and share them in our series of Guides. This Capture Guide, like the companion Proposal Guide and Business Development Lifecycle Guide, offers guidelines, not rules. Reality encompasses more variations than can be covered in a guide intended to be concise. When in doubt, consider the underlying principles.

Diversification provides a well-known way of getting something close to a free lunch: by spreading money across different kinds of investments, investors can earn the same return with lower risk (or a much higher return for the same amount of risk). This strategy, introduced nearly fifty years ago, led to such strategies as index funds. What if we were all missing out on another free lunch that's right under our noses? In Lifecycle Investing, Barry Nalebuff and Ian Ayres - two of the most innovative thinkers in business, law, and economics - have developed tools that will allow nearly any investor to diversify their portfolios over time. By using leveraging when young - a controversial idea that sparked hate mail when the authors first floated it in the pages of Forbes - investors of all stripes, from those just starting to plan to those getting ready to retire, can substantially reduce overall risk while improving their returns. In Lifecycle Investing, readers will learn.
