How to maximise benefit

We recommend that firms consider the following for maximum benefit from CCTC membership:

Strategic alignment: Review CCTC strategic focus areas and identify threads which are common to the firm’s own strategic priorities

Operational alignment: Review CCTC plans for the period ahead and identify key activities of potential benefits

Participation: Allocate an internal champion for each identified area to ensure that the interface between the firm and the CCTC is effective and that the firm is positioned to obtain maximum benefit from all relevant activities

New opportunities: Communicate firm-level challenges to the Cluster’s facilitators to contribute to shaping what the CCTC does and what additional future benefit member firms derive
