Henderson Alliance 

The HENDERSON ALLIANCE Strategic Plan for 2019-2025 sets out the vision for its future development and describes the strategies which will be put in place to transform the vision into reality.  This plan has been structured to make clear what our members and key stakeholders can expect from us and how their input into the planning process has been translated into purpose.

The Strategic Plan is essentially a roadmap for the development and delivery of capabilities and a range of services designed to meet the current and future needs and demands of HENDERSON ALLIANCE’s members.

Closely reviewed every year, the plan provides a framework upon which funding and resource allocations can be made.  The budget will also be reviewed annually within the context of this plan.

The Strategic Plan is, therefore, the overarching umbrella from which all other plans and guidelines will be based.

To ensure all plans and guidelines are developed to be consistent with current internal and external operating environments, this Strategic Plan will be subject to annual reviews and updated as required prior to the development and review of all other plans.

The Henderson Alliance is an industry group made up of volunteers committed to small businesses and endeavouring to support them to be successful not only in Defence-related industries but across all sectors. In doing so, we see the potential for many new Defence and other projects to be assigned to WA as we possess the professionalism, capacity and capabilities to perform at the world’s best standards. In turn, we see a stronger and more resilient economy for our State, bolstering future opportunities for our children.
