Strategic Business Development Review

The Chapman Consulting Strategic Business Development Review (SBDR) is a unique and powerful tool that includes a comprehensive audit of 100 questions squarely focused on your business. The insights they provide allow us to clearly identify your growth objectives and the sales and marketing strategy that will help you reach them.

“You put a lot of effort into the production and presentation of our SBDR. We were all very impressed with the report and gained useful insights into our market and our competition. We have since implemented many of the recommendations and our marketing capabilities have improved as a result.”

Managing Director, Ascot Design

“Thank you for the successful campaign that you have run to date. We appreciate the excellent work that you carried out for us. We have benefited from the structure that you outlined in the Strategic Business Development Review and continue to build on your thoughts and recommendations. The work has helped us to focus and direct our selling skills to win more work.”

Managing Director, Total Project Integration

100 questions. 360° clarity.

The SBDR is the first step towards gaining a comprehensive understanding of where your business is, where it needs to be and how it can get there as effectively as possible. The SBDR covers every aspect of marketing, sales, communications, learning and development and relationship management.

The SBDR was developed in 2011 by our founder and owner Sarah Chapman, who has over 30 years of experience in business development. It was launched after an exhaustive process of research and development and a year of market testing.

Maximise competitive advantage

The SBDR is conducted over two half-day meetings with one of our expert team and the process culminates in a thorough, bespoke report that details our recommendations and action points for maximising competitive advantage. On completion, clients either action the findings themselves or retain Chapman Consulting to develop and implement a business development strategy.

The SBDR is remarkably cost-effective. It is charged at a one-off fee, so clients do not incur overhead costs. Where the budget is limited, we will identify activities that we feel will generate the most immediate returns and devise the optimal means of delivery.
