Prioritise your plans

You can use these benchmarking exercises to prioritise business development plans and risk management across your portfolio of operations or investments. Our three-stage process provides you with a tailored, efficient and structured view of where to focus resources to develop your business and maximise growth.

  • Identification  We agree on the countries to examine and the risk/opportunity factors to assess. We then define a rating system for each factor to allow consistent benchmarking between countries. 
  • Assessment Our country experts analyse the factors and countries agreed in the identification stage to determine market attractiveness and deliver concise written assessments for each country. 
  • Prioritisation  We produce a quantitative assessment of the relative attractiveness and risk of each country. The weightings are decided either independently or in collaboration with you.
