How to Thrive under the NDIS: A pathway to sustainability for service providers

EDU Handbook

This book is only available in print format.

The Australian disability sector is currently undergoing massive macro and micro changes. The National Disability Insurance Scheme is the most significant market disrupter this sector has ever experienced.

How to Thrive under the NDIS is written for CEOs of disability organisations to help them handle the transformation from a charity heavily dependent on government funding, to a financially sustainable, mission driven non-profit in the new world order of the NDIS.

It includes recent interviews with sector thought leaders and CEOs of Australian and UK disability organisations including Cerebral Palsy Alliance, National Disability Services, Fighting Chance, Northcott, In Charge, Uniting Care Queensland, Enabled Employment, Jeenee Mobile, Clickability, Community Connections, Dimensions UK, Shared Lives UK and CASA UK.

The book outlines a brand driven methodology for developing an entire business strategy with the customer as the starting point for every decision.

It covers the critical strategic issues to be resolved:

  • Understanding your customer and your market;
  • Knowing exactly where you excel;
  • Owning your niche and identifying strategic 'mission-fit' partners.
