Business PlanningThe Business Planning Process
There are several steps in planning a business. A business plan captures the vision of the owner, CEO or a board of Directors for both short and the long-term future.
The vision answers the question, “Where your business will be in five years?” It’s not a mission statement but is in alignment with it. The Strategic plan is flexible and “live” that is ready to quickly respond to changes in economy, market and threats. The Business Plan is simple to understand with minimum significant training or systems change.
Once the vision is outlined, the company planning process starts. An end result is visualised and the written plan is made. Business plan document serves many purposes. A business plan seeking venture capital funding is very different from an institutional funding or a plan that is focused solely on internal change to guide company’s growth.
