Propel2Grow offers Flexibility
Propel 2 Grow isn’t a one size fits all approach; participating companies choose how much, or how little advantage they want to take of the support available. You may choose to complete Stage One only, Stages One & Two, or Stage Two only; the choice is yours. You may have already participated on previous provisions of support e.g. Propel I, GrowthAccelerator, Growth Mentoring etc. Propel2Grow has been designed to build on these foundations, not duplicate them. You will remain in the driving seat at each stage, enabling you to determine the speed of your company’s growth journey.
Stage One – Research & Diagnostic
Our team have a wealth of experience in analysis, planning and research and will expertly guide you and members of your management team through this free of charge process using a range of on-line tools to access your team’s strengths and limitations, in addition to accessing their understanding of the business operation as a whole. Findings of these results will be presented to you in an unbiased ‘Pulse Report’, which is yours to keep and will focus on how you can:
Grow your bottom line
Develop competitive advantage
Increase efficiency & effectiveness
Upskill the competencies of your management team & key operational staff
Stage Two – Tailored Package of Growth Support
Up to 50% funding is available to all Stage Two participants where a tailored package of consultancy support is provided. If Stage One has been completed, findings from this research may be used to guide the support package, in other instances participants know the consultancy support needed to help them achieve their growth plans.
