Strategic and business planning are not only compliance initiatives but also provide purpose, structure, and a road map to organisations for achieve their intended goals and objectives. For the plans to be effective, they need to be realistic, constantly evolving, and align with business vision and operational realities. We, therefore, write dynamic strategic and business plans that can be effectively implemented and monitored.
A strategic plan helps determine the future direction of the organisation, its competitive position in the market and means by which it is going to achieve and realise its business objectives. A business plan is more focussd on a specific product or service area and achieving intended business goals.

For International providers, Standard 8 (National Code 2018) (formally Standard 9.4) allows providers to offer up to one-third (33%) of the course in any one academic term through online and distance education. This requires development of a specific training and assessment strategy, schedule, and assessments systems for an effective implementation. Not all the units are suitable for online delivery. Where needed, online component has to be supported by other modes of learning/delivery.
