Writing a Business Plan - 12 Things to Do

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Twelve things to do when writing your business plan:

    1. Create a framework for the plan e.g. table of contents.
    2. Identify possible appendices, attachments etc.
    3. Estimate page lengths for each key section.
    4. List main issues and topics to be covered within key sections.
    5. Assign work programs based on the framework and lists.
    6. Draft all key sections in a logical sequence.
    7. Check the preliminary draft for completeness and plug gaps.
    8. Stand back and take a detached overview of the draft.
    9. Let an outsider or adviser critique the latest draft.
    10. Redraft, fine tune and spell check.
    11. Write the executive summary and plan's conclusion.
    12. Get an independent assessment of the final draft.
