Leadership & Strategy Development
Effective business development (BD) organizations don’t just evolve - they have leaders that know how to compete and win! Shipley’s consultants understand the complexity of winning in today’s competitive markets.
Proposal Center Management
Shipley is experienced at helping clients build and manage an effective and efficient sales/business development operation on the scale and schedule that best fit your needs. A bid and proposal center of excellence will be the basis for building a winning business development culture to sustain growth and promote productivity.
"Led by Shipley Associates, representatives of our subsidiaries and business development functions designed a common business development environment and created a companion guidebook in less than three months. We could never have accomplished this in such a compressed timeframe without Shipley. Their consultants brought a structured BD process design approach that kept us on track. Shipley's library of best practices, tools, and training modules allowed us to roll out A-GAME on schedule."

Capture Plan & Proposal Assessment
Strategic business opportunities deserve strategic focus. Shipley's opportunity-specific assessment of either a capture plan or a proposal provides an unbiased, fair evaluation of sales and capture effectiveness based on industry-validated best practices. Assessments can be performed in advance of an opportunity, during an opportunity, or after submission of the proposal as a post-submittal evaluation against customer requirements.
