Article Provides Guidance on Fighting Proposal Industry Burnout 

Proposal burn out

MANCHESTER, N.H. – Jan. 7, 2020 –   Expedience Software announced today that the Association of Proposal Management Professionals (APMP) has published an article written by Anne Wainscott-Sargent, in their latest edition of Winning the Business.

Her topic, “Fighting Proposal Industry Burnout,” examines ways to ease the widespread stress and burnout in the proposal industry

“Organizations largely rely on proposal managers and writers to drive revenue,” says Sargent. “They simultaneously manage multiple bids and oversee every step of an RFP response, including outreach to subject-matter experts, brainstorming win themes, writing, vetting, and finalizing submissions. They must meet impossible deadlines, often with limited resources both in people and automation tools.”

“This work pace, especially when it includes a lack of support, can lead to a host of issues, from irritability and exhaustion to insomnia and mental and physical health problems,” continues Sargent.  “Why not make 2020 the year we resolve to combat burnout?”

The piece is featured in the January 7 issue of Winning the Business. Read the article here.
