We design programmes

Translating policy objectives into tangible results for economic growth.

Through our design and implementation of business growth programmes, we have vast experience of transforming SME engagement, establishing Key Performance Indicators, monitoring, reporting, budget control and ensuring that our programmes deliver value and tangible results to businesses and outcomes for our partners. We understand the need to deliver on policy objectives and work to align these objectives with the needs of the business community.

Ideas built on insights and engagement with industry

Using our experience in developing and future proofing business growth programmes, we are able to work with our clients to scope, structure and strategise new and impactful programmes or interventions which deliver business and economic growth. We build ideas based on our insights and regular engagement with industry, to ensure that programmes meet and exceed the needs of the business community.

We believe our insights into the SME landscape and thorough understanding of the business support landscape makes us an ideal partner in developing and implementing funded programmes that deliver.

Track Record

01.

Food & Drink Wales Sustainable Scale Up Cluster

We scoped and developed the concept of a cluster for scaling Welsh food and drink businesses to collaborate to overcome common scale up challenges and were awarded funding through the Rural Development Programme to deliver the cluster. 

02.

Future Foods Programme

Born out of our development of the NutriWales cluster, working in partnership with Welsh Government, we scoped the concept of the Future Foods Programme with Aberystwyth University and secured ERDF funding to deliver R&D interventions for Welsh food and drink producers.

An ideal partner in developing programmes that deliver.

In developing new programmes, we start with the common need or challenge and prepare a concept paper outlining the approach, methodology, outputs and outcomes and possible funding partners.  We then move on to a detailed description of the types of activities which will be included in the programme, along with a proposed timetable for delivery and budget. We quantify expected outputs to ensure the desired outcomes are achieved. This might include outputs such as numbers of participants, participant feedback, increased confidence; and long-term measures such as success in funding applications, new products developed, export sales achieved, jobs created or safeguarded, etc…

As part of the scoping process, we define, in collaboration with funding partners, the types of outputs the programme should achieve, agree specific targets for those outputs and define the expected outcomes which are likely to create a positive impact on the industry and economic performance.
