Business Plans

 

The Business Plan is a written summary of what you hope to accomplish by being in business and how you intend to organize your resources to meet your goals. It is the road map for operating your business and measuring progress along the way.

 

The Business Plan identifies the amount of financing or outside investment required and when it is needed.

 

Why prepare a plan?

     

  1. The business plan identifies the amount and the type of financing or outside investment required.

  2. A plan makes it easier for a lender or investor to assess you and your proposal.

  3. It encourages realism.

  4. It helps you to better identify your customers, your market, your pricing strategies and the competitive conditions under which you must operate to succeed.

  5. It improves your ability to manage your business.

  6. A business plan provides an outline of your short term and long term business goals.

 

First impressions are important. A well-organized plan is essential for a lender or investor to assess your financing proposal and to assess you as a business manager.

 

By committing your plans to paper, your overall ability to manage the business will improve. You will be able to concentrate your efforts on the deviations from plan before conditions become critical. You will also have time to look ahead and avoid problems before they arise.

 

It encourages realism. It helps you to identify your customers, your market area, your pricing strategy and the competitive conditions under which you must operate to succeed. This process often leads to the discovery of a competitive advantage or new opportunity as well as deficiencies in your plan.

 

Three or four hours spent each month updating your plan will save you time and money in the long run and may even save your business. Resolve now to make planning a part of your management style.
