Individual Project – Free Consultancy
In this exercise you would be required to provide free consultancy. You would need to start this project early, as there is an implementation component to it.
- Identify a business that you feel has potential but lacks managerial capacity to achieve growth.
- Undertake an assessment of the business using the business model canvas: https://strategyzer.com/canvas/business-model-canvas in 12 – 15 slides.
- Drawing on the canvas, develop a strategic growth plan for the business and present it to the key decision-makers of the business. It should have immediate, short and medium/long term action steps. (4 – 5 slides)
- After one month of you presenting your action steps, visit the business and document what has been done with respect to your recommendations.
- Provide an assessment (with explanation) of the gap between what you expected and what actually happened.
