The only thing I would change is to call it "RFPs = High-Torture".

I never saw anything useful coming out of the RFP exercise from either the client OR agency perspective.

I agree with you. Don't do it if you can possibly avoid it.

Better to set up an internally developed list of priorities the client team agrees to in advance and select the agency on that basis.

What is this blog all about?

If you're serious about raising money from donors, you need to get serious about donors. More than ever before, donors are insisting that you share power with them, not treating them like passive ATMs. This blog is about the ways you can do that -- and the rewards that await you and your donors when you do.
