A business model for a model business.
A strong business model is imperative for long-term sustainability, which in turn is critical for continuing the meaningful outcomes that your organisation creates. CBB’s consultants drill down into your business model, identifying areas for improvement and opportunities for growth within your different business segments.
A strong business model is essential if your organisation needs to harness market opportunities or tackle threats to viability. Additionally, it provides a means to gauge the sustainability and viability of individual segments within your organisation.
To support your team’s understanding of your existing business model, we conduct a comprehensive review of the financial and social impact drivers within each part of the organisation.
Using a Business Model Canvas, we visually map out key information for each business segment, helping to analyse and diagnose risks or issues, and leverage organisational strengths. We also analyse available data to identify revenue, expenses, and surplus, and resource utilisation.
To ensure we are providing professional development opportunities to your team, we bring them together in a facilitated workshop to review and understand your business model. They walk away equipped with established business modelling skills, so they can carry out this work for years to come.

Deliver on your mission, develop a strong value proposition and fulfil a market need.
Not for profits develop new services and programs to enhance sustainability and create different opportunities to serve the community. However, the development process is resource-intensive and requires lots of consultation and research; it may be a challenge to manage this on top of the organisation’s core business.
CBB’s Business Consultants can take the lead and guide you with our robust design process. The outcome is a stronger service or program that embodies your mission and solves problems for your target customers.
We also ensure your team are being upskilled through facilitated workshops that work through the following steps:
- Understand who your customers are, and the need that your service or program will fulfil.
- Clearly define the outcome that your service is trying to achieve, so you can stay true to your mission as the service or program evolves.
- Question the value proposition of your service. For example, does it solve a problem for your customer?
- Map out your service, reviewing each step and all resources involved.
- Co-design possible improvements or changes with the end-user and staff.
- How to continuously review and modify the service or program in accordance with feedback and changing needs.
- Make sure the business model can accommodate the new addition.
Our sector experience informs this process and ensures your organisation ends up with an evidence-based service or program. Better yet, this practical process equips your team with the skills to repeat this same process in the years to come.

Get to know your numbers.
To make sure our organisations can keep delivering meaningful social impacts, we need to maintain a healthy financial position and plan for the future. As not for profits, we don’t always have the resources or time to create and assess budgets and forecasts. CBB’s Business Consultants provide the expertise and perspective required to develop a budget or forecast for your organisation, freeing up your time to focus on delivering your social impact.
It’s important to note that our budget and forecast development process focuses on the “why”. We work with your team to ensure the figures are linked to something meaningful for your organisation and are not just arbitrary. Not only does this foster ownership and confidence, it has the added benefit of upskilling them in objective ways of thinking about your financial future in connection with your social objectives.
Your unique budget or forecast is created by our expert Chartered Accountant and incorporates visualised financial data so that it is easily understood by your team. This equips your leadership and board with an objective view of the organisation’s financials to support better decision making.
We also present your budget or forecast (and the reasons behind the numbers) to your board and leadership team. Here, they can ask questions and become more confident in your organisation’s capability to achieve your mission.
