Plans don't fail people, people fail to plan!
The critical cornerstone to any new business venture or growing business is a complete and realistic business plan.
This plan is more than merely an exercise in forecasting but rather an exhaustive and objective review of your market, competition, resources, assumptions, and the conditions needed for your success.
The business plan should also establish mileposts by which to measure your business's performance and adjust the plan as necessary.
Why do I need a business plan?
A business plan is necessary for three primary reasons:
- It gives business owners a current assessment of the business as well as a road map for the future.
- It helps a business grow, both organically and through outside funding.
- It is essential to have an up to date business plan in order to secure financing, ranging from an overdraft facility or bank loan to venture capital funding.
For a business plan to be effective those who will have to implement it should own it.
So, it cannot just be delegated to a consultant. But an experienced business facilitator can add insight and value to the process while ensuring that ownership is in-house.
Why do I need to review my business plan periodically?
The business plan is a living document that should be continuously reviewed in light of the business environment and actual performance.
This enables the ownership to oversee business performance.
