More information and how to get help

What's this site all about?

PropLIBRARY is a site with a TON of useful information about business development, pursuit strategy, capture, and winning proposals. There are hundreds of free articles that explain the theory and foundations supporting our recommendations, and hundreds more for our paying subscribers that provide the checklists, templates, forms, and process guidance needed for immediate implementation.  Our subscribers also get access to MustWin Now, a tool we've built based on our process recommendations. We also provide consulting services to help companies implement our recommendations and win their proposals.

Speaking and training

Carl Dickson of CapturePlanning.com and PropLIBRARY is a frequent public speaker. It's one of his favorite things. Because he runs a web-based empire he doesn't get out enough. He'd love to speak at your event, but can't do them all. You are welcome to ask. Let us know when, where, about the audience, and the topics you think will excite them. You can contact him through our site.

About us...

We try to keep the attention on you and your needs, but how we got here is an interesting story.

We are we located?

CapturePlanning.com was formed in 2001 in the Washington DC area. Eventually we realized that as an Internet-based company we can be located anywhere. So these days we spend our time on the beach in Florida. Before COVID-19 we frequently travelled to our customer's sites.
