Course Description:

The question asked by many companies is “How can we gain organic, sustainable growth?” So many companies are on a roller-coaster ride of sales targets, profit reports, staff attrition and reputation management, it is hard for them to identify their core values or a true direction.

No one person has all the answers, and no external adviser has the experiences that firm has in their specific market, but working together, using a simple methodology, we can identify their strategy and apply the risk framework to provide them with sustainable development and organic growth, getting the edge over their competition. Starting with identification of objectives in both financial and non-financial, determining stakeholders and their impact, we can soon identify the true direction that the company should take. Once this breakthrough is made and recorded, we can work on both the internal processes and the resources (required learning and development) including outsourced and insourced functions.
