About This Class

Business Development (BD or Biz Dev) is a necessary practice for all companies that seek to achieve sustained long-term growth. But, surely you are asking yourself, what exactly is Business Development? Is it actually Sales?  Maybe it’s Marketing? Is it all about Building relationships? If you ask 10 different people what Business Development is, you will get 10 different answers.

Because Business Development is all of the above and so much more.  It’s a complicated and fascinating business discipline that allows for the discovery and introduction of long-term growth opportunities. It is, according to Forbes, the creation of long-term value for an organization from customers, markets, and relationships.

This course is about explaining what Business Development really is. It is about separating the misinterpretations and misunderstandings from the real thing; it is about learning how to execute the functions of Business Development successfully and get tangible long-term business results.
