Business Planning and Strategy Development
The challenge: Considerable market change means that social care providers face threats to some traditional forms of business, but also opportunities for innovation and development of new services to address the personalisation agenda.  
Advice is provided on market developments in terms of opportunities and threats in the relevant market sector, which can then be linked to consideration of the business/ management strengths, competencies, weaknesses and constraints, in order to make a realistic assessment, with management, of the potential for any particular initiative.
Typically this is through facilitation of business planning workshops with the owners/ management team, and can be followed by assistance in detailed strategy development and validation, as well as implementation planning and overall business plan preparation.
The focus is to work closely with our customers to help realise opportunities for business growth and profit improvement.
