What To Consider When Creating Your Capability Statement
Have you recently been asked to submit a capability statement? If so, you're probably wondering what to include in it.
How lengthy should my capability statement be?
A capability statement can be as short or as exhaustive and lengthy as you want it to be. However, it depends on what you want to achieve and what kind of information the prospective client wants to see.
Some clients may want to know the basics - like your company's profile, what you do, your experience, and why they should engage your services or products. In contrast, other clients may need to know more information like what kind of plant and equipment you have, your governance processes, commitment to quality assurance, and so forth.
Some companies may decide to have more than one capability statement as part of their portfolio. For example, if you have multiple divisions or departments, you could consider having a capability statement specific to each one. For example, here at ClientCentric, we created three separate capability statements for our client earthconnect, a business dedicated to making a difference environmentally through Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Technologies.
