- The Proposal Manager is in charge of creating and implementing the proposal schedule.
- The Capture Manager is responsible for identifying the resources required.
You can present your proposal schedule using whatever format (calendar, gantt chart, PowerPoint, etc.) you prefer. But first you need to determine what should go on your schedule.
Within the MustWin Process we designate several plans, including Logistics and Production, Quality, and Content. We also include a Collaboration and Coordination Plan for departments that will contribute to the proposal, such as Human Resources, Accounting/Finance, Supply Chain, etc. These plans are where you determine things like review dates, contribution deadlines, etc. For each of these plans, we recommend having a validation review to ensure the plans are sufficient. You can create the shell for your schedule, but you need to complete and validate these plans to complete the detailed schedule.
