Letter of Advice
15th July 2018
Re: Proposed Business Plan
As the consultant for ABC Bank, I went through the business plan which mainly focuses on entering in to the international market as proposed as India by January of 2020. The proposed strategies are sound good, however I have some issues and doubts in regards to the implementation of the strategies in new market. Therefore, I would like to take the attention of board of directors and I would advise to refer the below mentioned conditions and implications before go with the implementation of the business plan for India.
According to the proposed business plan, there are only 1 year and 6 months to plan for the implementation as by January 2020 the branch of ABC ban should be open. As per my views I believe that 18 months is not enough to implement a branch in new country because starting up a branch in new international market is risky it should undergo various processes and steps to implement the business plan for new branch. Therefore, my advice is to extend the branch opening at least by 6 months as there are various things to be done in regards to the branch opening.
If the board of directors needs to implement the plan by the proposed date, then the market entry strategy should be changed instead of going for foreign direct investment strategy. Because of the Indian market is not similar as Sri Lanka where the environmental and economic factors can be different. Therefore, it is advised to go for a new market entry strategy if the branch needs to be opened in proposed date.
To identify the impact and influences from the socio-cultural and local economic factors prevailing in India, it is recommended to appoint a person or entity which is based on India or International entity to conduct a comprehensive market and environmental analysis with the demand factors for the banking services.
The operational and administration requirements should be fulfilled mainly from India as the branch is opened in India. Therefore, before the 3 months of the launch at lease, the employees and staff to conduct the banking activities should be recruited from India. However, the top positions of Indian branch should be filled by Sri Lankan managers as the new branch should operate by adhering to the corporate culture of ABC Bank. I also wish to advice on administration expenses to maintain at low level as much as possible due to risk factors. However, a good advertising and promotional campaign should be conducted at least for 1 year from commencing operations.
These are main problems and concerns I identify from the proposed business plan. If you wish to obtain more information and recommendations on the plan, please do not hesitate to contact me. Wish you good luck in your new initiative
