Session 9

Critical Resource-Development With Dynamic Business Models

Overview

CEOs and other leaders understand the critical role that certain resources play in driving business development and performance – staff and their skills, strong products and services, valuable and loyal customers. They also know that developing and sustaining these factors is tough! This session explores how dynamic business models (DBMs) can capture resource pipelines in marketing, staffing, product development, and other staged business processes, and how DBMs can be used to plan, analyze, and manage these processes, for stronger business development and performance.

Learning Outcomes: 

  1. Understand the stages through which business resources develop. 
  2. See how DBMs quantify and capture the dynamics of pipelines for customers, staff and other resources.
  3. Gain insights into how resource-development modeling can improve business development and performance.

Target Audience:

  • Marketing, HR, and product-development executives and analysts.
  • Business analysts, consultants and strategists wanting stronger models for business development and performance.
  • Academics and students interested in business strategy development and implementation.

This webinar aims to equip attendees with the knowledge to utilize dynamic business models for effective planning and management of crucial business development activities.
