Portfolio Business Development Strategy

Successful portfolio and business development strategies bring a single-minded focus to what you are offering your market sector and geographies where an organisation can win.

Business development support: Many of the projects we assist with focus on new business development, market penetration, new product launches or finding key advantages against competitor offerings. So, we can help you implement additional or augmented business development resources.

We have developed eight key points to show Intelligence-driven business development helps you beat your competitors, increase sales, move into new markets, reduce risk and uncertainty. To help you understand the power of what we can do for you. Covering threats, competitors, new customers, more profit, finding stuff out and going something about it.

The eight parts of Intelligence-driven business development

1. Finding stuff out

Ensure that you are kept fully aware of competitors, technologies, market changes and what people are doing and saying that impacts your business.

2. Find out what is possible

We will show you new ways to find opportunities that you are not currently engaging in, utilising methods that verify what is possible with your resources.

3. Turn competitive threats into opportunities

Do your competitors have big teeth? Get to know them really well at a safe distance and then take advantage. Understand who REALLY is your actual competition, who is your biggest threat and what can you do about it. Keep your competitors closer. Know what they are up to will make sure you can react quicker and predict what they will do next.

4. Keeping track of threats and opportunities 

Let’s face it; no one likes uncertainty. We will help you reduce risk so you can make a safer decision. Business is all about staying ahead of the things that could damage your business. Whilst also keeping ahead of what is going to happen and where the next opportunities are.

5. Finding new customers

Find out how to target the best new customers and ensure that they need your product or service; build your understanding of what they currently use and your advantage to ensure that they buy from you.

6. Help that could revolutionise your business

You have not applied methods before to improve and build your business using easy and cost-effective Intelligence-driven solutions.

7. Getting more profit from your existing clients

Customers are hard to acquire and can be easily lost; make sure you are doing everything right to keep your customers and keep them happy.

8. How to maximise performance from what you already have

People are usually the highest cost and the riskiest element in any business model. Make sure that you are applying everything necessary to maximise the cost versus the performance of people. 

We offer bespoke tools to immerse you into the competitor way of thinking, test assumptions and identify what’s needed to secure long-term competitor advantage.
