“Making it Our Business” – A Commercial Awareness Programme

Starting to offer your services on a more commercial basis? This could be the programme for you.

Where there are parts of the organisation that may be starting to offer their services on a more commercial basis, either internally or to an external market, this programme is designed to develop some basic skills in those preparing to manage the service.

The programme is flexible, but can include:

  • Trading in a public sector organisation
  • Negotiation Skills
  • Writing a Business Case
  • Customer Relations
  • Marketing
  • Practical Project Management
  • Presenting Your Business Case

Where available, we will use your organisation’s own procedures and documentation to ensure that the programme is customised to your organisational needs.  And, if you don’t have the procedures or documentation in place, we can help you to develop them.

A "light" two-day version is also available and covers the following:

  • Trading in a public sector organisation
  • Marketing
  • Negotiation Skills
  • Writing a Business Case
  • Customer Relations
