Our first Win Loss Analysis training program was held at the Strategic and Competitive Intelligence Professionals (SCIP) annual conference in 1999. I enjoyed teaching Win Loss at the 2016 Association of Independent Information Professionals (AIIP) annual conference. We also train corporate clients, who prefer we don’t disclose their identity. Refer to industries served.
Some people feel adequately informed by Win Loss articles and presentations. Others learn more by reading Win/Loss Analysis: How to Capture and Keep the Business You Want. They follow the detailed 12-step Win Loss process to develop their program. They improve their interviewing skills by reading those chapters, including one on elicitation. They also learn the pros and cons of outsourcing, and how Win Loss analysis can be used to make strategic decisions.
Others need a nudge to either develop or improve their Win Loss program.

I enjoyed your Win/Loss presentation at SLA. I learned what a value-added tool win/loss analysis can be for a business. I was also impressed with your communication style, usage of PowerPoint, and engaging the audience. (Special Libraries Association: Competitive Intelligence Division attendee)
On-Line Win Loss Analysis Training
We are developing an on-line training program.
Our vision is Ellen Naylor will be live, presenting each module of the course, once a week. There will be an hour of Q&A just after the class. We will have our own closed Facebook group for Q & A in between modules. This will be a 6 – 10 week course.
Stay tuned for more details!
