WE PROVIDE THE RIGHT BUSINESS DEVELOPERS TO HELP EFFECTIVELY SHAPE AND REALIZE YOUR BUSINESS GROWTH

 

REALITY IS MADE UP OF CIRCLES BUT WE SEE STRAIGHT LINES

THE BUSINESS CIRCLE OF CHANGE

The world of business today is complex and growing more complex every day. Making effective decisions is much more difficult in this brave new world.

Systems thinking provides a model of decision-making that helps organizations effectively deal with change and adapt. It is a component of a learning organization, which is an organization that facilitates learning throughout the organization to transform itself and adapt.

 

THE CYCLIC BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT MODEL®

The CBD model in short is a mental framework (‘system’) to identify the Business Development opportunities for our clients and what the best approach would be to capitalize on such opportunities.

The CBD model, developed by DIWANIYA [J.R. Schütt & A.J. Boelen, 2012] acts as an inter-disciplinary communication tool for better decision-making. The model keeps you focused on constantly growing your organization and creating future revenue streams.

 

 
 
 

“EFFORT AND COURAGE ARE NOT ENOUGH WITHOUT PURPOSE AND DIRECTION”

-JOHN F. KENNEDY-
[1917-1963]



 
 
 

WINNING WITH STRATEGY

The Cyclic Business Development model® categorizes three strategic choices to be made in terms of how the organization seeks to compete at the individual business level.
 

1. Rethink Your Business Identity

It is your identity that makes you different from others.

The Value Disciplines is a competitive strategy framework that works on the assumption that an organization is most likely to excel at what it is already good at. By this, you can make an honest assessment about whether your business strategy aligns to your stated ‘competitive advantage’.

2. Innovate With Purpose

In the 21st century no competitive strategy can be formulated or thought of without an innovative perspective.

Companies need to have an innovation strategy. The innovation strategy defines the role of innovation and sets the direction for innovation execution. Competitive advantage is the result of proper alignment of business strategy with innovation strategy. Organizations who can manage in the present as well as focus on the future, and who can balance exploitative innovations and exploratory innovations well in daily life shall be successful on the long term.

3. Drive Growth

To push your business forward and make it bigger you need a clearly defined business development strategy:

A roadmap to grow your business through renewals or new combinations in the new strategic direction. This is typically done to find new sources of revenue growth and/or manage competitive threats. A good growth strategy replaces random and opportunistic Business Development with a reliable and systematic approach to growth.

Ideation, Screening and Selection

Ideation is the creative process of generating, developing, and communicating new ideas.

Idea screening is the process that evaluates and contrasts new ideas to get the most promising ones for your business. We evaluate innovative ideas, strategies and market trends. Not every idea is relevant to your company. In order to screen out a good idea from the not so good ones, there are certain criteria that should be followed like technical problems, strategic fit, and several market opportunities. We determine compatibility with overall business objectives and whether the idea would offer a viable return on investment. We create mini business case proposals for best ideas.

Concept Development and Validation

Concept development involves coming up with a detailed description of an idea, explained from the perspective of your customer.

We examine and prioritize viable ideas on its feasibility and desirability. We create detail business case proposals. We analyze idea pipeline KPIs, develop alternative concepts to meet the needs and in parallel we re-think business operations and ways of working.
Concept validation is the process of showing design concepts to your stakeholders to discover whether they feel that these concepts address their needs. It also allows us to get feedback from them on ideas. We gather evidence and learning around concepts through experimentation and user testing. We adjust and optimize the business case. In parallel, we create commitment, sponsorship and set-up partnerships.

Realization and Implementation

Realization is where we capture the momentum and translate engagement and intent into tangible results.

Here we actively implement the concept. Implementation is the action that must follow any preliminary thinking in order for something to actually happen. We manage the operational implementation and execution of the innovation, including upscaling. We secure partnerships. We manage the business case.

Launching and Anchoring

We assist and support Business Management during the market introduction.

We pick up learning from the commercial roll-out, transmit learning to management and refuels the innovation strategy cycle.
