Event itinerary:

11 a.m.: Working with a Team for a Big Proposal
When responding to RFPs, FOA, BAAs and so forth, a proposal team is necessary for both the project design and preparation logistics. Hear from an experienced partnership some best practices for how faculty and administrative support work together to coordinate large collaborative projects, including logistics of organizing a team, assigning and managing tasks, using team workspaces, typical roles and responsibilities, coordinating with all essential players (business managers, G&Cs, etc.) and partnering mechanisms for collaboration with external stakeholders (MOUs/MOAs, Teaming Agreements, etc.).
Noon: Intro to Strategic Doing

Complex challenges can be addressed through collaboration, but collaborative teams don’t just happen. Effective collaboration must be learned and practiced through a strategic doing approach. Attend and learn how to design and guide effective collaborations to accelerate innovation and change, and take away some internal support resources to help with your next project.
1 p.m.: Team-Related Elements Within a Proposal

Team members have the responsibility to contribute information in a timely manner and in accordance with the RFP and instructions, but the team leader must ensure the strengths of the assembled team are successfully presented in the proposal. This program will discuss how to convey the merits and purpose of your team throughout the proposal, including a primer on Team Science, examples of organizational tools and resources for drafting management plans and other supplemental documents to demonstrate teaming.
