Business Development involves all of the processes and strategies that will develop and promote the growth of your organization. Developing long term value for your business is integral to your growth, and will solidify the relationships you have with your clients, market, and business community. While a solid business development strategy will often lead to increased sales figures, a development plan is about more than sales - it's about the solid foundation upon which sales growth is built.
