Use Status Notes for BD Meeting in OneTeam

Use Notes to Support BD Meeting or Pipeline Review in OneTeam

Determine and document your BD Processes BEFORE implementing them with your team.

Here are some questions to help guide you through the process of implementing a Weekly or regular BD Meeting, where Capture Managers present a quick overview of their assigned opportunities. You can adapt this process to your company BD processes and use the same functions for a full pipeline review or other meeting. To successfully implement the OneTeam tool and integrate with existing processes, outline your new process, train the team on the new process, and then implement the process on a regular basis. Some example questions to help you determine how to implement OneTeam into your BD process:

How often should Captures Managers make an update of the opportunity to share in a meeting or briefing? Will it be

Weekly for all opportunities?

Weekly for opportunities with RFP Release date less than 9 months away?

Monthly for opportunity RFP release dates of 12+ months away?


What terminology will they use for this update or brief?

Will these Notes be called Status Update, Weekly Update, Weekly Brief, Monthly Update, or other terminology? Everyone must use the same terminology so that they know where this information is located. Also, this allows for easy keyword search.


How are updates reviewed?

Will they be done in a live presentation or meeting, or will manager simply review them online?


What information do you want to gather?

Here are some examples and suggestions”

  • Date of last update
  • Changes since last brief
  • Schedule status
  • Customer contacts – phone, in-person, email
  • Teaming status
  • Upcoming Events – Industry Day, Site Visit, Gate Review, etc.
  • Decisions or support needed
  • Next steps and actions

Private means that teaming partners will not be able to view the note, but your internal team can view the note. Here is example information for a Weekly Review, or Weekly Status, or similar Note.
