10 year contract (working hard last year) Plan an annual review of RFP You are as good as your last encounter Well we did 8 of the 10 right Every client you keep, is one less that you need to find. Nigel Sanders Write one good thing you did, that you no longer do and ask why?

Then get out, go to work and serve the customer! Gene Buckley, President Sikorsky Aircraft Write one thing that make you better than the competition
Relying on yesterday to carry the day Good enough isnt Excellent firms dont believe in excellence – only in constant improvement and constant change. Tom Peters Why should you be allowed to continue providing the services you do?
Its the little things that matter RFP submission errors The more you engage with customers the clearer things become and the easier it is to determine what you should be doing. John Russell, President, Harley Davidson How do you get accurate feed back?
Scales of Economy Too Big to Fail Management constantly changing In the end, the customer doesnt know, or care, if you are small or large as an organization. She or he only focuses on the garment hanging on the rail in the store. Giorgio Armani List something you do that give that personal touch.

Obsolescence is the state of being which occurs when an object, service or practice is no longer wanted even though it may still be in good working order. Obsolescence frequently occurs because a replacement has become available that is superior in one or more aspects.
If patients receive care from other providers within 90 days of a hospital stay, a hospital could get a lower scoreand subsequent lower paymentbased on care they did not provide or even know about. Hospitals thus risk receiving punitive payments that do not accurately reflect the quality of care they provided based on factors beyond their control. (Pay for Performance)
Stay Engaged like its the first day Dont ASSUME you cant be replaced Longevity is not a strategy Know your political standing Your successful past will block your visions of the future.
Yes you must prove value Read the RFP Respond Like a 3 rd grader Transparency Dont get greedy
