Accelerated new product or process development

Do you want to take your business to the next level of growth? Do you need to improve the speed and success of your new product or process development processes? Find out about HIE’s exciting new initiative with experts from PA Consulting and register your interest for this at: entrepreneurship@hient.co.uk 

Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE) has launched an exciting new programme to help ambitious entrepreneurs accelerate their growth and scale their business. The programme starts with an in-depth and intensive two-day workshop which takes you through a structured approach to new product or process development. There is a networking dinner for participants at the end of the first day of the workshop.

The workshop will be delivered by Dr Steve Carden from PA Consulting in Cambridge, a renowned expert in this field.  After the workshop, you will have a bespoke three-month action plan for your business.  You will be assisted to implement the action plan by specialists from PA Consulting and HIE staff.

During the course of the three-month programme, you will have monthly calls – by phone or Skype - from a specialist at PA Consulting to keep you on track. The purpose of these calls is to discuss your progress and any challenges you need to overcome. You will also join two webinars delivered by PA Consulting on topics chosen by participants on the programme.

The cohort of businesses on the programme will meet for a final session at the end of the three months (at Horizon Scotland, Forres on 3rd April 2019) to reflect upon progress and lessons learned.  This session will also be delivered and facilitated by Steve Carden and other specialists from PA Consulting.
