Advice: label draft docs as such, put in specific notes like "this section from proposal X for inspiration-needs actual text for proposal" and so on. Old adage is document and pages therein need to stand on their own, so if there is a possible gap between content and possible use, label it and make unintended use next user/author beware...

...Thought we would further hone the proposal to make it client ready, but I haven't heard back from the partner. By now, he thinks I'm a screw up, which is pretty accurate in this instance. Just venting/sharing my current low- No actual question for the community this time

Better to be incompetent than negligent

How often does everyone check in with their project leadership specifically about their performance on a project?

I am a project/program manager type with strategy and implementations exp, mostly in healthcare. I am interviewing for a solution architect role on Monday. Does this even make sense? I have an MBA and PMP. The program manager role has been filled, but the recruiter insists I interview for a senior SA role. Should I pass? Don’t want to embarrass myself for lacking tech skills.

If all the top consulting firms made anonymous decks or gave anonymous pitches to a client, eg no branding and the client did not know which firm made which deck, do you actually think that the client would prefer MBB?  Is MBB actually coming up with better/more innovative solutions? I feel like I see many repeat or slightly altered solutions on almost all of my cases, are these really things that people at Deloitte/Accenture etc aren’t coming up with?
