Business Capability


Are you looking to grow your business through tendering but don't know if you have the right business capability?

Do you need assistance with your business planning to including tendering as part of your strategy for business growth?

We are often asked what the business capability requirements are for successful tendering; for us business growth is important and we therefore always make time to speak to business owners on both the pro's and con's of tendering.

Through the use of our business framework tool, we can benchmark your business capability and provide you with recommendations for improvement. With our extensive experience, not only in tenders and procurement, but in many other areas of business, we can assist you with working out where the gaps are and what needs to be done to close those gaps.

We can help you develop your business capability in the following areas:

  • Business Framework Review - we utilise our business framework tool to benchmark your business capability;
  • Strategic Business Planning Sessions - we utilise our extensive experience in facilitating risk and brainstorming workshops to help you with your business planning;
  • Capability Statements and Portfolio's - it sometimes is so much easier to let someone else tell the story of your business and what you can do;
  • Training and coaching -empowering you and your personnel to effectively manage tendering and procurement within your business.

Every day you delay building your business capability, you delay your opportunity for business growth!
