About The Bid Manager – Lee Lister
Lee Lister, the director of Biz Guru Ltd, is Management Consultant and Senior Project/Program Manager with 30 years management and consultancy experience and more than 25 years program and project management experience in projects for Banking, Finance, Insurance, Leisure and Government bodies. She also have more than 10 years bid management experience ranging from bids for medium companies to large international and infrastructure bids.
She has worked in or for a considerable number of countries within Asia and Europe, has lectured and given corporate presentations on project management and bid management. Whilst working in the Far East she became a recognized expert on preparing and evaluating large World Bank Proposals (infrastructure projects within developing countries). These accomplishments called upon the skills of bid and project management, risk assessment, contract negotiation and supplier management and required dedicated work to very tight time scales. This expertise was acknowledged by an invitation to be the principle speaker at an International Business Development Conference in Washington, USA. She has also consulted at very senior level in several countries.
She writes regularly on program, project and bid management as well as career development. She has project managed the design and implementation of numerous large financial and management systems, often program managing or running several projects at once. These projects have required full involvement from investigation and feasibility study and contracts to implementation and final support. Whilst managing these projects she has managed teams of various sizes, either directly or virtually. The largest projects that she has managed have been at the $90m level, with a team size of circa 80, over several countries. Lee Lister has specialized in analyzing and solving problems for companies experiencing difficulties with their current business environments and in setting up departments, program management and bid management environments from scratch.
This work requires a resolute, authoritative and considerate project management style. She has found it vital to introduce structured methods and procedures into the companies, ensuring that projects are implemented in the optimum way and that the business problems do not re-occur.
