Economic Development – Organisational Strategic and Business Planning

Armstrong Muller Consulting have, over the past 20 years, been involved in a wide and varied range of strategic and business planning projects for indigenous communities in SA, WA, NT and Queensland in diverse fields such as hospitality, community services and small business development. Projects have included strategic and business planning for cafes and galleries, mining related activities, accommodation, labour hire, fuel outlets, broad-acre cereal and sheep properties, tourism ventures, building companies, revegetation nurseries and community stores.

Our team can assist through an early analysis of the proponent’s current status, identifying achievable goals and timelines, and developing productive partnerships with industry or regional partners where appropriate. We ensure ongoing and open communication and facilitation with the indigenous organisations. Our experience in remote communities enables us to take into consideration the challenges of isolation and to plan for realistic outcomes and the need for future planning and review.

Our consultants can demonstrate the broad base of experience required to deliver a successful outcome, including a substantial amount of work with the commercial sector.
