Some companies grow like either a racecar or a horse buggy; both might reach the finish line but one is going to get there a lot faster. Consistently, the most explosive growth in the federal market is achieved by companies who have mastered the ability to respond to time-limited, page-limited task order proposals. Learn the difference between racecars and horse buggies in the fast-paced indefinite delivery vehicle world.
