The Fortis Business Development Model:

Explore and Navigate

Embarking on a journey of self-awareness, it's imperative to conduct a comprehensive deep dive into our business. This encompasses an assessment of our current stance within our market segments, a detailed evaluation of our products or services, a review of our capabilities, and an alignment check with our overarching strategic company goals. Complementing this self-examination is a rigorous SWOT Analysis, which brings to light our strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats. By harnessing this analysis, we can collaboratively develop a lucid picture of our comparative position against competitors and precisely pinpoint where our strategy should be channeled.
Our approach offers focused industry insights that present a concentrated snapshot of the immediate trends or challenges that our clients are confronting. This is coupled with a targeted competitive analysis that zeroes in on specific competitors who are of immediate concern or certain facets of the competitive landscape that warrant closer attention. Recognizing the value of timely information, we ensure swift feedback on distinct market segments or pressing concerns. To further tailor our service to client needs, we also provide short-term market forecasts that are adapted to their immediate timeframes.
To successfully navigate your company's market segment, it's essential to first identify the key federal agencies and departments that have a significant influence. A comprehensive review of market trends is crucial, taking into account budget allocations, forthcoming projects, and the government's stated priorities. Another indispensable step is the examination of current and past Requests for Proposals (RFPs). By doing this, we can gain a deeper understanding of the common requirements and expectations set forth by these federal entities. An analysis of the government’s historical spending patterns in relation to our target markets provides invaluable insights. From this, we can determine any cyclical patterns present, as well as indications of whether budgets in our sector are expanding or contracting.
It's paramount to first identify the key decision-makers and stakeholders in any project, as they often hold the reins to its direction and outcomes. Alongside this, gaining a comprehensive understanding of the compliance standards and certifications relevant to the target domain is essential. This ensures that all efforts align with the established criteria. To further solidify our position, it's crucial to be prepared not just to meet, but to exceed these requirements. Crafting development strategies and proposals with this mindset positions us at the forefront, ensuring our offerings are both competitive and compliant.
Recognizing and understanding the competition is a foundational step in our approach. This involves identifying main competitors and undertaking a thorough evaluation of their strengths, weaknesses, market share, and past performance. Coupled with this is an in-depth market share and growth analysis, where we assess our own presence within the market and project the available opportunities within that segment. But we don't stop at current insights—strategic intent and future projections play a vital role in anticipating a competitor’s upcoming moves. Armed with this foresight, we can then develop strategies designed to capitalize on these movements. Essential to this entire process is an acute understanding of our key differentiators, which can provide us with a distinct advantage over the competition.
In the endeavor to position our company advantageously within the market, we begin by deeply researching and understanding its landscape. This entails conducting a robust needs assessment, critically evaluating the regulatory environment, and closely studying the budget forecasts. From this foundation, we then identify potential opportunities, leveraging forecasting techniques, analyzing past contracts, and seeking out promising subcontracting ventures. But beyond just recognizing opportunities, it's pivotal to evaluate and capitalize on our inherent strengths—this includes leaning on our certifications, utilizing set-asides, and showcasing our proven track record from past performances. As we venture into new segments, we meticulously identify barriers, pinpoint key opportunities, and discern the essential customers and programs that will allow us to rapidly capture a significant market share, all while strategically positioning ourselves for sustained growth in the future. At the heart of these endeavors lies a comprehensive bid strategy, encompassing an effective pricing methodology, a compelling proposal development process, and a sound risk management approach.
