Business Planning

‘A GOAL WITHOUT A PLAN IS JUST A WISH’ ANTOINE DE SAINT-EXUPÉRY

The backbone of any successful enterprise is good planning – whether it’s for a school essay, a family celebration or a holiday.

Your business is no different. You need a business plan, and not just because most investors or lenders will want to see a business plan before they consider funding your business.

Good business plans set the course of a business over its lifespan. They can be used as tools to identify where you are now and in which direction you wish your business to grow and they will also ensure that you meet key targets and manage business priorities. They act as a checklist, so you can see what you have done and have yet to do, and also a benchmark for achievements.

Incorporated into your business plan should be succession planning, outlining what happens to your business when you decide to step down.
