Assessing the quality of a capture effort is a difficult task. Any assessment is simply a snapshot in time; your capture could get better… or it could get worse. A capture readiness assessment should look at the snapshot, but also look at trends. Using Lohfeld Consulting Group’s 12 Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), you can analyze where your capture effort is today, identify areas for improvement, and then chart whether your capture trends upward in readiness for the win.
Business capture takes time and money, sometimes with few tangible results. How do you assess capture readiness for each opportunity in your pipeline?

The OASIS on-ramps will follow a phased approach beginning with Pool 1, the most used pool with the smallest size standard ($15 million).
