Working Business Plans

There’s an old saying “If you fail to plan then you plan to fail”  This is true about most things in life but especially so in Business!

There are basically two types of ‘Business Plans’.




The first is the more formal ‘once-off’ document that you might be asked to prepare if you are looking for some sort of backing (eg financial) for your business.

The second type of business plan is more informal in nature, and much more of a working, ‘living document’.  Typically it will describe the strategies and actions that you might plan for your business over a set time period – say four months, or a year – in order to achieve a clearly-defined set of objectives or outcomes.   Strategies might cover any aspect of the business, including:


  • Strategic Planning
  • Financial management
  • Marketing
  • Sales and sales management
  • Business systemisation
  • Team recruitment and development
  • Leadership development
  • Exit planning
