What is Growth & Capability Building?

While business growth is a strong sign of a company succeeding, it can quickly become an issue if unplanned and unprecedented.

An increase in demand means more talent is needed to continue delivering success after success. However, bringing new people in at the wrong time can have disastrous consequences for a business and its’ employees. At Armstrong Craven, we specialise in growth and capability building strategies to ensure you know when the right time to hire new talent is and where the best pool of candidates lies.

Our Approach to Growth and Capability Building


Succession planning

Disruption is an unavoidable factor in people planning and it pays to be ready when it comes. We can help you identify and cultivate the individuals ready to ‘step up’ when it does; thus helping to ensure business continuity (or minimal business disruption) due to unexpected changes.

Diversity planning

Businesses need to attract the best people. We can help you establish the strategies and relationships that will help you broaden your talent pool. Using our targeted approach to improving diversity at all levels within your business can help improve business performance and increase market share and revenue.

Business continuity

Often described as ‘just common sense’, business continuity is also described in terms of resilience and agility. We can help you identify the people with the resilience and agility to underpin your future business success and reduce risk.

Growth and capability building

Growth is the target of most businesses. But if it isn’t planned for, it can also prove their greatest challenge. As businesses succeed they need to take on new talent to continue to deliver their success. By engaging with a pool of external talent in advance, growth can be managed and talent integrated as the strategy and performance dictates, substantially reducing the people risks associated with growth.

Perception management

As it does with your customers, your business has a brand identity amongst your employees and potential employees. We can help you understand and develop your employee brand to get the best out of your people. By understanding how your brand is perceived in the marketplace and amongst new generations, we help you adapt to attract the best talent for the future.
