Tender support

CGR Business Solutions have extensive experience with public sector tenders and can offer support and guidance in this area.  This could be by helping with the governance, where we act as the independent reviewer to ensure that the bid meets the criteria. We can also build the appropriate gated review process for governance of this type of deal.

If required a bid management option can also be offered where we would direct the bid and build a plan to make sure it was submitted on time. This can be combined with the review process but in that case we would have different members of the team performing the roles, so that we had separation.

Each bid will be different in complexity and scale, we can also offer a simple model that looks at the material value of the bid before too much work has been done to assess the win probability and the risk.

Business Growth

CGR Business Solutions will work with SMEs that face growth challenges. This could be by looking at Data Driven Management Information, but more likely will focus on the process and procedures needed to introduce a governance structure to help the business keep the ethos it has built and allow the key individuals in the company to focus on the skills they have allowing empowerment in the company without losing control.



Data Driven Management Reviews

Most small businesses are run by very enthusiastic entrepreneurs who are great in the innovation and development space.  While excelling in inovation they sometimes struggle with the business side of things and this is where we can help.  Understand the offering of the company is the first step so we can work with you to build a vision and then turn that into a business plan with key performance indicators.  Once the basic components have been established we can build a Management Information system to support this, introducing dashboards and structured reviews to ensure the business owner understand where the business is going.
