The Business Acceleration Program is an initiative of the Northern Territory Government, hosted by the Darwin Innovation Hub, delivered by the Australian Centre for Business Growth.
The Business Acceleration Program consists of two parts: the Growth Clinic for the CEO/MD only) and the Growth Modules for the CEO/MD plus two members of the executive team (three, three-day modules, over approximately a nine-month period). The program is underpinned by our Knowledge Framework for Growth – our guiding framework that enables CEOs/MDs and executives to understand how their company works and the changes they need to make to grow their company.
About The Growth Clinic
Eligibility: CEOs/MDs of NT-based companies with at least $1 million in revenue and 5-200 employees.
Program Fee: The Northern Territory Government is fully subsidising the Growth Clinic for 30 Northern Territory companies. The usual cost of the Growth Clinic is $5,000 (excl GST).
Duration: One-day (9am – 5pm).
What You Can Expect
LEARN ABOUT GROWTH
Based on our Knowledge Framework for Growth, learn from and work with Growth Experts (all of whom have started, grown and exited their own companies) to understand what happens during growth, how your role changes as CEO/MD, responsibilities as a leader, and what you can do to fast-track growth.
PLAN FOR GROWTH
Identify what is preventing growth in your company and what you can do to accelerate growth. The Growth Experts will review your Growth Clinic prep-work, provide feedback, and help you develop a Company Growth Action Plan as well as a personal Leadership Development Plan.
DISCUSS CHALLENGES OF GROWTH
Connect with other like-minded CEOs/MDs of small and medium companies attending the Clinic; learn from each other’s experiences; discuss your company’s inhibitors and opportunities as well as the results of your pre-Growth Clinic diagnostic with the Growth Experts and your peers.
ACCESS TOOLS FOR GROWTH
Use our comprehensive Action Planner with growth content, tools and resources to understand your company’s strengths and weaknesses. Gain access to growth refresher content after you attend the Growth Clinic which is designed to keep you on track with your goals.
Once a CEO/MD has completed the Growth Clinic, he or she can apply for part 2 of the Business Acceleration Program: the Growth Modules. The Growth Modules are for the CEO/MD who completed the Growth Clinic, as well as two executives from their team. CEOs/MDs may request to bring one or two additional executive team members to the Growth Modules, subject to program capacity and at a cost of $1500 per person.
