Business planning: Outline

Whether you are starting a business or you have been running a business for 10 years, chances are you will need some help on specific issues or general issues.

Business planning is an essential component of any successful business but it is often overlooked due to pressures of day to day work. A
well considered and constructed business plan can help you safeguard your own investment, focus your efforts, ease external financing problems and provide you with a yardstick against which to measure your progress. Once developed you should aim to maintain your business plan in-line with your business.
