If you’re starting a new business, expanding an existing business, or if you’re looking for financing, you need a solid business plan. Our Business Planning consulting provides advice and guidance throughout the entire process of creating a compelling Business Plan.
Even if you’re not looking for external funding, a good business plan can make all the difference. It is your playbook for how to make the business successful.
Developing a compelling business plan is not a trivial matter. Of course, you want the final document to make a good first impression. However, don’t get too focused on the ‘form’ at the risk of neglecting ‘substance’. It is the content of your business plan that demonstrates your insight and understanding of the business and what it will take to achieve success.
Most of your effort should go into the “planning” activity itself: how to get customers, evaluating options, analyzing ‘what-if’ scenarios, thinking about the pros and cons of the business model, and developing detailed pro-forma financials. You need to work on each and every aspect of the business, you can’t leave anything to chance.
A good business plan helps you to:
- Define the purpose of the business
- Identify operational and human resource needs
- Create P&L and Cash Flow forecasts
- Communicate the business opportunity
- Provide structure to the business
- Get funding
