By design, the Free-Plan Business Plan Guide & Template is aimed at helping new and established businesses to produce comprehensive business plans, most probably, for raising external finance or for guiding management or securing internal approvals within a largish organisation.
However, the supplied Free-Plan Template (FREE-PLAN_TEMPLATE.DOC) can also be used to help produce (a) a basic/short plan for a very small or "home-based" business or (b) a "long" executive summary for a larger business as follows:
Using this approach, it should be possible to draft a plan of under 15-20 pages. See Length of a Business Plan for more guidance.
If planning to use Exl-Plan to help generate financial projections for this plan, look at one of the more simple versions such as Basic, Micro or Lite. Get more detailed information and free trial downloads for these versions.
For further discussion on different types of plans and their lengths, see the online white paper on Insights into Business Planning.
