    IDC Seminar: The Winner's Curse (2 ARIDO CEUs)

    This seminar will discuss the common paradox inherent in bidding and estimating processes which is “whoever makes the biggest estimating mistake wins the job.” The discussion will include key best practice techniques for optimizing bidding and estimating results in terms of win/loss ratios while maintaining job profitability. The seminar will also explore using job post mortem information to continually improve a firm’s bidding and estimation process and to link the estimation process seamlessly into the work schedule processes.
