How we Create Business Strategy That Works

As specialists in all aspects of business strategy and planning, we work with you and the key people in your organisation to identify and agree the long-term vision and goals for your business as well as how you are going to achieve them. Our aim is always to help you to create strategic and plans that work for your business.

Involving the key people in your organisation in the strategy development process by obtaining information about your business and its future is a critical part of building a strong strategy. We will work closely with you and your team to understand your business and your vision for its future. This helps us to gain a clear understanding of where your business is today, where it will be in the future and what may get in the way.

To do this, we have developed, in conjunction with leading practitioners in the field, specialist strategy development tools and techniques that allow us to acquire, manage and analyse the complex information that surrounds strategy development. This helps us build a strategy model that allows us to work with you and your team to build, and if required, implement a robust strategic plan for your business.

Emphasis is placed on gaining consensus from the strategy team on the way forward for your business. This not only creates a robust strategic plan that is grounded in reality but also acts as a catalyst for positive change and improvement in your business, thereby increasing the likelihood that your strategic plans will succeed.

Services tailored to meet your specific needs

We do not operate a ‘one size fits all' solution but rather tailor our services and methods to meet your specific needs. Consequently, before starting working on your business strategy project, we will discuss your business its issues and what you want to achieve from the process.

You may, for example, simply want to kick start the strategy creation process by generating the initial goals, objectives, issue and actions. Alternatively, you many want us to help you create a fully developed strategic plan or perhaps something in between.

The answers to these questions will enables us to agree a project specification and a budget with you before we start working with you on your business strategy project.

While working on your strategy project, there is a chance that unforeseen issues will arise that need to be dealt with but were not accounted for in the original project specification. In these circumstances, we will work with you to agree on a revised budget for additional work before starting the work so that you will always know what your total investment will be.

Testimonials

When I met Ian Brown of BIBD, we had been drifting along in the market with no clear idea of direction and even less idea of how to move forward. When I was introduced to Ian, I was very impressed with what he had to say but had the cynicism of a man that had met “consultants” before. Ian convinced me to at least try and see if it was for us – it was. I was very keen to ensure that each member of staff in the company was given an opportunity to have an input to the process. Ian designed the process to match my needs and introduced what can be a complex subject very light hearted and understandable. This certainly helped to ensure that all the staff got an opportunity to have their say. The method of input was just so easy and the relaxed atmosphere encouraged people to contribute their ideas and issues. Through this unique process, Ian helped my staff and me to develop a strategic plan for the company. Over that time we used the plan as a constant point of reference to help us to focus and move the business forward, which we have successfully achieved. We are now working with corporate clients in the construction industry who use our specialist expertise in lighting with building theatres, heritage centres, exhibition venues, etc. We have also extended the wok that we do in the events area. Having successfully implemented out original plan, I am not working with Ian again to help us move the business onto the next level. Ian is working with me on a regular basis, providing advice and support and helping me to further develop our strategy and also to implement the actions that we need to take in order to achieve our goals. Unlike many ‘consultants’ that I have worked with, Ian does not preach – instead, he works with me in a very supportive way, providing direction and advice where appropriate and encouraging me to take the actions that are required to make progress. Ian also provides me with a ‘sounding board’ for my ideas and issues, which I find very helpful. I would recommend BUBD to anyone who needs help to direction in an organisation and to uncover the issues involved and, importantly, to develop potential solutions and actions. I would also recommend him to Managing Director who feel they need a bit of support and advice while retaining control and authority in the organisation.

I have worked with Ian Brown of BIBD (formally Komita Management) on two occasions over the past two years. Once in my role as Operations Director of a Confectionery company and again most recently in my role as Chief Executive of a Seafood company. The fact I returned for a second time with an unrelated business is testament to my view of Ian and the ‘Journey Making’ process. All too often businesses fail to completely review where it is they really want to go. This is often as a result of both time and from a fear of dealing with both complexities and potential differences of opinion. The ‘Journey Making’ process copes well with complexity and allows everyone to contribute fully in a very open and timely way. Finally, the clarity of what actions are required in order to fulfil strategic ambitions flow naturally from the process together with a sense of common purpose.

Ron Ferguson


I am a Chartered Accountant with over 50 years of post qualification experience in private practice, as a consultant and as a CFO. I believe that the process is the most robust planning system I have come across in all my years of producing corporate plans. I have worked with BIBD on many business plans each of which have been successfully financed and/or helped the business to successfully develop and implement strategic plans. I fully subscribe to the benefits of working with their processes. In addition, I would add that it captures and retains information which can be used to create and update strategic plans. It also provides the basis for review of actual outcomes compared with expectations and allows a higher level of participation for all levels of staff within the business.

Ian Steven


BIBD worked with our Board to help us to get a clear idea of where we want the business to be in five years time. The tools and techniques that he used certainly helped to focus our minds and to ultimately reach consensus about our goals and aspirations for the business. I subsequently asked them to work with our management team to help us to gain an understanding of how we can move the business forward in order to achieve the challenging goals that were set by the Board. They used a variety of tools and techniques, including interviewing each member of the management team individually, to identify many of the ways in which our goals can be achieved and also the challenges that we will have to overcome to attain our vision. I believe that this was an important part of the process because it helped to start the critical task of implementing our strategic plans. All too often businesses fail to implement the strategy that they devise for many reasons, including a lack of time and resources and also from a fear of dealing with both complexities and potential differences of opinion. We, therefore, felt that this was an important step in getting the ball rolling and in communicating our plans to the people who will play an important part in delivering them. The processes that Ian uses are certainly very powerful and have helped me to gain a better understanding of the key issues facing the business and, more importantly, how they might impact on our ambitions to grow the business. This helped me to focus on the important issues and to create action plans that will enable us to move our business from where it is to where we want it to be. I have no hesitation in recommending BIBD to anyone who wants to gain consensus about the future goals and objectives for their business and also to anyone who wants to involve the key people in their organisation with developing plans to help the company attain its objectives.
