Business Development

Many consultancies drive at the point in your business that will cause the least upheaval.  That works well by talking to executive board members for a while.  They aim at placing emphasis on a high-level strategy that takes even more money to deliver and stitches you into a lengthy contract.   How many of your executive board actually have a grasp on the reality of the engines of activity beneath them and have the time to examine them?

Consult Covenant does that for you and works through your entire organisation proposing a truly consultative approach.   By that we mean earmarking key objectives, establishing deliverables, critical success factors, expected outcomes, milestones and structured planning and costing to enable your organisation to maximise its time working with us.  We don’t linger.  We are focused and target driven.


Commercial Forecasting
Commercial opportunities rarely present themselves without effort.  If you need to set expectations to your board, finance director, bank manager or you are all those three roles in one, then setting a forecast for the opportunities is key.  Covenant will help scope the opportunities, scrape off the excess thats not worth the effort, streamline the process and activities.  Its not easy.  Objective decisions to target your sales is the hardest process in business.  Are you creating blue oceans of value innovation or are you simply chasing and competing in red oceans with your rivals?  You need a plan to deal with both to stay ahead and to grow your business.

Developing a Proposal

Some small businesses are highly innovative and need to create proposals to win clients.  These clients want to invest with you but need the whole project shaping to make the best opportunity.  If you not drafted a formal proposal or have had proposals rejected, where do you start, what do you do?

Covenant have a successful formula for this part of business development and will mentor you through the process.  Each element of the proposal should speak to the steady building of a relationship.  Successful proposals are built on understanding the customer’s needs, describing the intentions, scope and deliverables, pricing, and the expected return on their investment.  With those in place you can show what success looks like and have also neatly built the confidence that you know what you are doing. The offer is clear, the value is clear and the return looks pleasing too.


Sales Process & Development
If your a small business its easy to simply get out there and chase the business.  Your competitors are also doing that.  The areas you could exploit are also untapped and your busy figuring out how to do something new there too.  At this point you can lose focus or become burdened by the competing priorities.  Your sales process needs refining.  What if you have never really done that.  Covenant are experienced in shaping your sales process, ensuring you devote the right time and effort to the best value opportunities.

Service & Product Development
Probably the least invested part of a business is the planning and execution required to develop new or existing products and services.  Businesses simply don’t devote enough time to creating more than one product.  Price, newness and availability are not the only reasons customers buy products and services.  Creating value whilst innovating is key and your business will need to invest time in this.  If you don’t, eventually another supplier will beat you to it.  If you only have one product or service offering what will you do when a competitor muscles in on your client base.  Defining strong and sustainable products and services is a core element of Covenants offering for small businesses.
