Dear Friend,

Please refer our previous blog, Blog No. 49, in which we identified the key challenges, as we see them, in Business Development. Let us now try to figure out ways to overcome them.

Sl. No.

Challenge

Measures to Overcome

1

Affording the cost of business development efforts which involves cost elements associated with travel to the locations of prospects, cost of free confidence-building pilot projects, etc. (i)      Ensure the success of returns by deploying right expertise, and processes

(ii)    Seek and leverage an external funding, if required

2

Availability of the experts to provide a prospect the much-needed initial confidence (i)      Have alignment with the experts as required

(ii)    Seek and leverage an external funding, if required

3

Building up expertise and infrastructure when “things are yet to work out (i)      Ensure the success of returns by deploying right expertise, and processes

(ii)    Seek and leverage an external funding, if required

4

Affording infrastructure ramp-up without the assurance of business volume sustenance (i)      Ensure the success of returns by deploying right expertise, and processes

(ii)    Seek and leverage an external funding, if required

5

Providing a lower-cost better-quality solution / service Deploy right expertise, and processes

6

Meeting the process requirements, including data security requirements, of a prospect Assess the process requirements, and deploy them in a direct way, i.e. exactly as required

7

Managing the discomforts in the early stages of a new business relationship Ensuring patience by an effective approach which includes in-depth understanding of the requirements

8

Payment terms of a new prospect (i)      Defining the payment terms explicitly

(ii)    Seek and leverage an external funding, if required (to be able to handle the impact of delayed payment)

As you can see, the measures are located around ensuring the “fruit of hard labor” while being supported in the “forming days”!

Do you see any other measures? We’ll, as usual, wait for your inputs…

Respectfully yours,

Dear Friend,

It has been a while since our last blog on the 9th June…

However,  we have been thinking…thinking over again and again… gathering topics / issues that we need to discuss, deliberate on, and get off our track…

Please refer our previous blog, Blog No. 48, in which we identified measures to overcome obstacles in ensuring a Right Work Ambience enabling Happy Engineering.

Let’s discuss another important topic – Challenges in Business Development. As usual, let’s identify the “aspects of the problem” before we look for measures to address them. We see the following as the challenges:

(i)                  Affording the cost of business development efforts which involves cost elements associated with travel to the locations of prospects, cost of free confidence-building pilot projects, etc.

(ii)                Availability of the experts to provide a prospect the much-needed initial confidence

(iii)               Building up expertise and infrastructure when “things are yet to work out

(iv)              Affording infrastructure ramp-up without the assurance of business volume sustenance

(v)                Providing a lower-cost better-quality solution / service

(vi)              Meeting the process requirements, including data security requirements, of a prospect

(vii)             Managing the discomforts in the early stages of a new business relationship

(viii)           Payment terms of a new prospect

Do you see any other challenges? – Please do share.

In our next blog, we’ll look for measures to overcome these challenges…you and us together as usual!

Respectfully yours,
