There are many thoughts and assumptions on what Business Development actually means and how it applies within the software development sector. To get a view of the various ideas that exist around this topic, I asked a few people what their thoughts were:
“Business Development is about identifying and securing clients and their needs.” Logistics Manager.
“When I think of the role of Business Development I imagine a team just like a swarm of buzzing bees working to create their beehive, to develop the best technology for businesses.” Early Childhood Development Lecturer.
“Business Development is all about growing a sustainable business through strong, sound values and strategies that are aligned with all the core business functions, such as strategic management, marketing, HR and supply chain to name a few.” Sales Manager.
What Does ‘Biz Dev’ Really Mean, Specifically within the Tech Sector?
Is it a swarm of bees creating a productive tech business? Ultimately yes, it is unquestionably the new “Buzzword” used to describe the role of a modern day sales team and the synergy between the workforce and businesses is a vital dynamic of ‘Biz Dev’. This also most certainly involves identifying and developing relationships with clientele through strong sound values and strategies.
‘Biz Dev’ in Technology.
‘Biz Dev’ specifically in tech involves premeditated management, strategic marketing and sales skills and is the synergy of ALL employees, from the CEO, to Project Managers, to the Sales Team and and Development team. Together this business development team works to generate growth and valuable long-term relationships with clients.
