Work Sucks, but Your RFP Doesn't Have To by SXSW published on 2013-04-24T16:48:20Z Imagine you want to buy a car. A good car that will be fast, reliable and will last a while. So you ask several car shops to send you a 20 page document describing the car and its many benefits, then you base your car purchase on the best written document. That's what an RFP is. It's like shopping for a car without test driving. Why would you want to commit to a nice set of wheels before taking it out for a spin? Using RFPs to select vendors makes as much sense as shopping for a car blindfolded. If you're looking for creative solutions, why use a process that removes creativity? Proposals only tell you how good a vendor is at writing proposals. The No RFPs movement, started on the heels of SXSW 2012, is continuing to catch on. Our industry needs a breath of fresh air, a new solution. Join us as we continue to develop an approach that is more human and approachable, a process that treats developers and designers like creative professionals, but still meets client requirements.
