About the Course

The City of Cockburn is running a series of workshops to support local businesses to become Defence Ready. These in person workshops are designed to provide need-to-know information and critical insights to help businesses prepare and tender for work in the Defence supply chain.


Workshop 1: Business Strategy to Become a Defence Contractor

Technical capability and capacity are necessary, but not sufficient, conditions for success. Defence equipment often remains in service for over 30 years and the industry wants a reliable supply chain that will be there to service and maintain the equipment for its entire life cycle.

This workshop covers the elements that SMEs must consider to be sustainable and grow over the long term to become part of the defence supply chain.

Topics include:

  • Your vision, plans and resources to enable your business to grow into major suppliers;
  • The systems you need to match the size, scope and complexity of working with Defence or their primes;
  • Undertaking research into how your future business plans can contribute to current and future defence capabilities;
  • How to develop a Quad Chart to demonstrate your businesses capabilities;
  • Having the right management team in place – are you attracting and retaining the right level of skilled people;
  • Managing your cash flow to contract to a prime; and
  • Are your safety management plans and policies and procedures in good order.
