Moving From a Welfare Funded to a Business Model in 12 steps

Brief Description

The Sector changes and challenges in Aged Care and Disability, in particular, are both huge and unavoidable. As uncertainty, trepidation and not knowing how to make the leap from a Welfare to a Business Model are common-place, many service providers and their people are dreading the move forward - with some wondering if they will survive the turmoil.

With the roll out of the NDIS and My Aged Care and other significant impacts on the industry, each service (business) has the key responsibility to ensure it is ‘future-ready.’

This is easier said than done, given that transition of this magnitude involves people, processes, systems, policies and organisations all needing to embrace the changes and face the future with greater certainty.

With a focus on building the business and marketing the service/products to grow the Organisation and bring more clients through the door, a new set of skills are needed to help leaders negotiate the future.

This easy to follow 12 stage Program will help you guide your business through the challenges and uncertainty of change, successfully moving from a welfare funded model to a business model.
