The Composition of the Tutorials

Why Should You Write a Plan at All?

Most companies or individuals only begin to think about business plan when someone asks them to complete such a document. Usually it’s a bank to apply for a start-up loan or another lender for working capital. But, there are good reasons as to why everyone should have at least a path to where they’re heading.

Various research studies show that:

  • More companies stay profitable for longer.
  • The owners of the business understand the tactical plans to achieve their longer-term objectives.
  • Non-financial and non-marketing people should begin to have an improved understanding of these critical areas of the company.
  • You’ll be able to communicate your ideas to others in a structured manner.

Additionally, you’ll have a plan to track progress against and see what’s working and what elements need adjusting to achieve your financial goals.

Preparation and Data Gathering
