rfp-robotRFP ROBOT: Website Request for Proposal Generator

The time has come for a new website (or website redesign), which means you need to write a website request for proposal or web RFP. A Google search produces a few examples, but they vary wildly and don’t seem to speak really to your goals for developing or redesigning a new website. You need to write a website RFP that will clearly articulate your needs and generate responses from the best website designers and developers out there. But how?

Have no fear, RFP Robot is here. He will walk you through a step-by-step process to help you work through the details of your project and create a PDF formatted website design RFP that will provide the information vendors need to write an accurate bid. RFP Robot will tell you what info you should include, point out pitfalls, and give examples.

I really like this, a lot. The basic concept is simple:

We can think of the people on any given team as vectors
People vectors have both direction and magnitude
When people all work in precisely the same direction, their magnitudes are added to each other
When people have any degree of deviation, the varying directions subtract (at least somewhat) from the maximum amount of productivity that could be achieved

Vectors, People, Alignment
This is one of the better ways to understand the power and importance of team and organizational alignment. What does this actually mean? Here’s the answer:

Align people with the organization’s goals.
Aligning individual teams (product, marketing, sales, service, etc.) with the organization’s goals.
Aligning the organization’s goals with the needs of the customer.

When your team is aligned with the organization, their specific team(s), and then finally with the needs of the customer, you have a winning formula.
So much more to this great post – I’m going to borrow heavily from it.
And, sure, of course… people are more than just “vectors” but I think everyone gets that. This doesn’t necessarily diminish the person; in fact, I think it elevates them.
