Strategic publishing support and training
Academic, scientific and scholarly publishing is undergoing substantial changes which require multiple skills and innovative solutions. It has never been more important to use business planning as a tool to build success in an uncertain future.
We assist small and mid-sized companies to develop and implement effective strategies and ensure successful execution to acheive their business goals. We can provide small one-to-one consultancy and workshop-based training, plus follow-up meetings as required.
The form of the consultancy is first agreed with the publisher. Items that can be included within a workshop may include:
- Developing a successful business plan
- Making more of a success of your publications programme
- How to make good use of the changing publishing environment
We run short courses on strategy planning which are aimed at publishing managers and editors, and which help develop skills in evaluating their current publications. The course is based around evaluation of developments in the publishing industry; identification of key development strategies; and creation of action plans to help improve publishing success. These courses are usually run in-house, and have been run in the UK and in China.
We are happy to discuss any training or support requirements. Please contact
