What is the Course About?

Business Growth Accelerator Program.

The Business Growth Accelerator Program (BGAP) is an intensive, executive education course designed for senior managers, c-suite executives, and business owners, tailor-made to focus mainly on Uganda-Kenyan (i.e. regional) businesses.

The BGAP was developed in collaboration between AVODA Group (Uganda) & Strathmore University Business School (Kenya) to identify and harness practical, regional strategies for Cost Optimisation and Revenue Maximization.


Cost Optimization Strategies

Cost reduction is about making more out of less. By cutting some of its most significant sources of waste and overspending, a company can increase its earnings—even without increasing sales.

Themes covered include:

  • Understanding the WTP (Willingness-To-Pay) Curve
  • Harnessing Internal measures for cost reduction
  • Capitalizing on External measures for cost reduction
  • Saving costs through innovative leadership

Revenue Maximization Strategies

We live in a world of unprecedented change, increasing global competitiveness, and the very real threat of commoditization. Innovation in this world is the best way to win—arguably the only way to really win. Innovation is not a separate, discrete activity but the job of everyone in a leadership position and the integral, central driving force for any business that wants to grow organically and succeed on a sustained basis.

Themes covered include:

  • Designing an Innovative Business Growth Strategy in East Africa
  • Marketing Yourself and Your Products/Services in Uganda & Kenya
  • Managing Business Finance for Growth
  • Making Information and Communication Technology work for you
