In March 2016, we were engaged to work with Burundi’s largest business incubator, Burundi Business Incubator (BBIN) who needed help to build and deliver against their second, five-year strategic plan.
Burundi is amongst the poorest countries on earth and suffers from an unclear political climate.
BBIN is identified as neither a commercial enterprise, nor a traditional charity, thus typical business models are challenged, conceptually.
Efficient to Effective worked with the team over a two-day period to:
BBIN now has a clear, detailed, five-year strategic plan, with KPIs in place for all contributing staff; a meeting schedule that is no longer onerous or resource hungry; and an early warning notification should any part of the plan be underperforming.
Stakeholders and staff in BBIN now have a clear understanding of the strategy, the tasks needed to deliver against it and how to anticipate and rectify any shortfall in performance.
Meetings are far shorter; fewer participants are required; resource is concentrated on strategic tasks.
