The objectives of the study was to assess the situation of the business development services
(BDS) market in Jordan in preparation for the Business Development Services Conference 2005:
Shaping Jordan’s Industry with International Best Practices. The consultancy included
researching all BDS initiatives managed by donor agencies, NGOs, and development programs,
assessing the market demand and supply of BDS services in terms of obstacles, approaches, and
matching of needs and requirements between the suppliers and beneficiaries of business
development services, pinpointing the practices used whether they be in tune with worldwide
best practices or not and assessing the progress of the BDS market across time. The study
resulted in the main paper that provided an overview of the BDS market in Jordan and its
direction, and identified all the players in the market, their detailed programs and target groups.
