CA/PTW Assessment: Start the Journey to Improve Your CA/PTW Practice

Take this survey to assess your implementation and execution of Competitive Assessment/Price-to-Win (CA/PTW) on proposal efforts. Through the survey, you will identify strengths and weaknesses in your CA/PTW implementation. There are four CA modules and seven PTW modules. The assessment questions look for objective evidence that your CA/PTW implementation and execution aligns with industry best practices in each of the 11 modules. Given the assessment covers both CA and PTW, you may need to solicit inputs from others in your firm to complete the assessment. The topics covered are:
  • 1
    Opportunity Assessment: How do you assess opportunities?
  • 2
    Customer Assessment: How do you obtain information about your customer?
  • 3
    Competitor Assessment: How do you obtain information about your competitors?
  • 4

    Transitioning from CA to PTW: How do you use your competitive assessment data in your PTW?

  • 5
    Customer Funding Analysis: How do you know how much your customer has to spend?
