Guiding Business Development Through Example

What We Do 

Cascadia Business Development is a strategic operations consulting firm committed to creating lean, conscious growth through operational excellence. Our specialty is in working with businesses that are experiencing growth challenges due to working with insufficient systems.

It’s been our observation that while many businesses begin with a great idea, a handful of passionate, capable employees and early business success, most businesses hit a point in their growth where break down starts to occur. We continually develop, improve and deliver a variety of consulting services to support our client’s long-term success.

How We Help You

We take a comprehensive approach to diagnosing your business and its growth problems. Our goal is to spark new life in your company and get you back on the road to success. We do this by focusing on your:

  • Employees
  • Company processes
  • Capacity development
  • Our professionals have years of experience and can help you restructure your company’s flow and day-to-day operations.

Build Business Capacity

Building capacity is key to sustainable growth. We help organizations enhance their ability to improve operations, increase profits and strengthen overall performance.

We custom design each consulting engagement based on the organization’s “Current State” and its desired “Future State” using our P5 Capacity Building model.

Our Commitment

At Cascadia we are passionate experts in business development and believe these companies are the true cornerstone of future success for our nation’s economy. Our core mission is to support business success, complimenting education with focused action.

Our Experience

Our team has over 60 years combined experience in all facets of business management and capacity development. We quickly and soundly guide our clients into real action through consistent accountability.

Our Services

Our services cater to businesses of all walks that are facing growing pains or developmental stagnation. With a custom designed plan of action for each individual case you can be sure in our ability to help you grow your business.

The P5 Model

We have developed a streamlined capacity model on which to analyze and excecute a sustainable development plan specific to your company. Our P5 method focuses in on key developmental factors and lets us hone in on any outlying issues.

Our Training Programs

The training programs and workshops offered by Cascadia are designed to strengthen and expand the capacity of an organization’s core foundation in four areas. Using our balance scorecard we look at your business based on Customer/Client, Financial, Operations, and Innovation perspectives.

Once we know where you stand and where your development needs are, we implement specific training programs, workshops and presentations aimed at helping you get there.
