The Basin Business Advisors (BBA) program consists of four business advisors who offer business assessment services to for-profit businesses and social enterprises in the Columbia Basin. The BBA program wishes to enhance the level and quality of support that it provides to existing farm businesses including crop, dairy, poultry and meat producers.
Gaps and opportunities identified during the business assessment may indicate the need for a specialized business consultant. In collaboration with the client, the Basin Business advisors will contact approved specialized business consultants to develop a scope of work and if agreeable, the specialized business consultant will be retained by the BBA program to work with the client. Consultants will be contacted when a case comes forward that demonstrates need.
We are seeking business consultants with specialized agriculture expertise in the following areas (though need for additional areas of expertise may arise):
- business planning;
- human resources;
- market identification and research;
- marketing and sales strategies;
- financial analysis and management;
- change management;
- succession planning; and
- other skills as they arise.
