Leadership and Strategy Development
It is clear from the NDIS proposals and the Productivity Commission Report that new business models will need to be put in place for disability service providers. CBB can assist in providing a strategic overview of how an organisation may approach this. CBB has considerable experience of working with Boards, Executives and Senior Managers to identify and assess the current status of organisations against standard business models and assist in charting a way forward for them.
Developing a Growth and Sustainability Strategy
Key to success of an organisation in a quasi-market based system such as that proposed by the NDIS is the ability to develop a growth strategy and development plan for the future. CBB can assist in utilising business models and practice within an organisation in order to develop strategic and operational plans that challenge existing approaches to secure the optimum approach to growth and sustainability.

CBB’s team of consultants and specialist accountants with experience in the Disability Sector can assist organisations to address these issues and implement changes, often utilising existing business and IT systems.
