TBD stands for Team Business Development. And this means all your people working together as a team towards building a better business. The results from this team based approach to business development can be staggering.
Have a look at our case studies. You will see examples of:
Did you know that the average UK worker wastes 50% of their time at work? This is not because they are idle or even incompetent but because much of the time ‘the system’ gets in the way of value-added working. So, the role of the coach is to use TBD’s unique team-based planning methods to work on the system with you and your people. And the overarching goal is to redesign the system to make it easier for people to do the right work right.
In this way, TBD gets your entire enterprise working as one team towards unified goals. The result is fewer mistakes, less waste, and bottlenecks, the removal of ‘unintended consequences’ and the high energy uptake of new ideas, and improvements. Check out our case studies to learn more.
As a taster of what TBD does, we offer a basic business health check. First off this health check discovers all sorts of hidden problems that are holding you back. But even more important, the health check then gets to the root cause of them. This service is guaranteed to save you thousands.
By the way, we will not take the job on if we don’t think you can make ten times the cost of our fees from potential savings and improvements. Call Jeremy Old on 0845 0945 819 for more information and learn about our money back guarantee.

“… The most exciting thing to have happened since I set up the company… Not only do we now have a much clearer overall direction, but the planning process disciplines us to focus on exactly how we will fulfil our aims."
"At the time we really needed help, Jeremy came through and provided invaluable aid restructuring and redirecting the business. He put us back into a healthy profit after a really difficult period when the recession hit us. A year later we are using him again to help refine systems, processes and teamwork"
“TBD has achieved more in three weeks than I normally achieve in six months”.
We have learned a lot from Jeremy’s involvement and now have a clear structure to the way we run improvement projects. TBD has really helped us see the forward strategy, identifying future risks and opportunities in a structured way.
"TBD is the best thing the firm has done for years. It is like a breath of fresh air. We can handle a variety of issues in a fast and practical way without getting bogged down by argument and long-winded discussion. The group planning gives us a much better collective focus on what we have to do next and the simple means to do it as well."
“TBD is just brilliant. The one-day workshop has transformed 100 or so whinges into 14 coherent projects. It has collated, filtered and ordered all the different viewpoints and opinions so that the links have become apparent and we can see where we are and where we need to get to next.”
“Senior managers now make more of a communal effort. We talk a lot more, whereas before we worked in isolation; each doing their own thing, but not really realizing our impact on other departments. Factory workflow is much improved and profitability is up.”
“Instead of having departmental rivalry, each department can now see that what they are doing may be causing a problem for other departments. They are now far more supportive of altering their own ways of doing things to assist the needs of other departments.”
“The improvement projects set up by the planning team have introduced an array of initiatives including lean manufacturing techniques, such as the 5 ‘S’s, and widespread NVQ training. We are already experiencing reductions in scrap generated and are projecting a 25% savings in the despatch department. Basically the whole place just seems a lot more organised.”
