Building The Next Generation of Business Development Leaders

At ECS, we are all about investing in our people. Our education benefits have helped former interns become experts in cloud artificial intelligence, help desk analysts become cybersecurity specialists, and program analysts become leaders in cloud development.

In 2021, we developed the Culture of Capture program, a 10-month learning experience designed to equip talented ECS employees with the knowledge and tools to become the next generation of business development (BD) and capture leaders. Through mentorship, training, and hands-on learning, participants gain the skills and experience to lead strategic deals and champion ECS’ business growth.

The Culture of Capture program features:

Biweekly one-on-ones with
executive-level ECS mentors

Monthly training in deal identification, account planning, capture tactics, proposal  contribution, and pipeline management

Shipley certification on Capturing
Federal Business

Hands-on experience as a capture manager
on a strategic deal

Congratulations to the Class of 2021!

“We’d like to congratulate the inaugural class on their wonderful achievements. Over the past 10 months, they’ve shown immense drive and dedication as they’ve honed their business development skills. I look forward to seeing what the graduates accomplish in the coming years and beyond!”
