Enterprise Development Interventions and a Supply chains success depends on identifying and building Solid and Superior Performers. Historically there has been an inadequate focus on selecting Sound Companies within Enterprise Development programmes which has resulted in a large variety of companies entering ED programmes of organisations. Poor companies (ones that require too many interventions or are not suited to a CD) have been presented to corporates and ED interventions for either ED support or a Company Diagnostic. This poor selection has caused us to assist corporates and ED programmes in helping them in identifying Sound Companies for either their supply chains or ED programmes.
This programme is designed to support organisations quickly and effectively identify businesses that are most likely, given the right assistance, to succeed.
The programme quickly screen out poor businesses. Improving the quality of the companies in ED / company databases which will ensure such companies invest in businesses that are sustainable and capable of being incorporated into a company’s supply chain.
