BUSINESS & DEVELOPMENT STRATEGY FOR RESULTS

Strategy is at the heart of every successful business or development. A business needs to know where it comes from and where is it headed – with a clear, rational and funded business plan to get there.

1. Business Strategy
Business strategy is sometimes defined as a firm’s high-level plan for reaching specific business objectives. Strategic plans succeed when they lead to business growth, a strong competitive position, and strong financial performance, leading to a sustainable and socially responsible member of an inclusive commercial society.

2. Development Finance & Economics
Infrastructure Development strives to facilitate service delivery through the development, construction and management of public infrastructure so as to optimise the creation of decent jobs and the promotion of a better life for all. It serves the needs of a modern society. Business principles together with Value Chain Analysis, ‘Quadruple Helix’ collaboration, long-term sustainability and social inclusivity are important and founding principles for responsible development.

3. Economic Impact & Social Inclusivity
All development has direct and indirect impacts on the society and communities within which they occur, and these interventions need to be to the greater benefit of all stakeholders. Development needs to take place in a sustainable manner which considers the ‘Triple Bottom Line’ of society, the environment and finance, recognising that economic and social development is essential to the wellbeing of human beings and the planet which we share.
