Test your business development plan by comparing it with a model based on commonly held best practice. Uncover easy to implement improvement opportunities. Use business development planning to drive performance.

Examine organisational enablement by answering these three questions:

  • Is your organisation optimised for results?
  • Are resources, policies, procedures, and plans helping or hindering performance?
  • Are there overlooked opportunities to optimise operations and process?

Reveal the opportunities through our structured review of sales, marketing, and business development capabilities. Identify strengths and weaknesses, opportunities and vulnerabilities through a consultant assessment and validation of sales strategy, marketing strategy, and the business development plan.
