Business planning is one of the most crucial parts of starting a business. Get it right, and you’ll earn the trust of investors, distributors, suppliers and staff. Get it wrong, and your business could face huge problems just getting off the ground.
A business plan is a document that sets out in detail exactly how and why you will run your business, including how you will fund it and who your customers will be.
We deliver strategic Business Plans that provide businesses with a roadmap of where the business is heading, ensuring that there are clear goals in place and a plan as to how this will be achieved.
We are experienced in all areas of business planning and pride ourselves on offering a quality consulting service. To ensure you get the best possible result for your business, we deliver completely customised Business Plans that are tailored to your exact needs and objectives, without any use of “out-of-the-box” strategies or templates.
We stage our process to ensure time and money are not wasted. Developing your business plan looks like this:
We have a kickoff call with your key stakeholders, to gather as much information as possible about you, your team, your business and what you want to achieve. All key stakeholders are given a detailed questionnaire to complete – which helps form the background and basis for your business plan.
We take your information and research your market, current conditions and analyse the best way to present your data to your desired audience.
We ensure we believe your idea is in fact investable. If in our research phase we see key risks, threats or weaknesses that we feel have not been addressed adequately we look at how to fix these and have a further consultation with you and your key stakeholders. We ensure you are aware of any perceived risks and we develop strategies for action together.
With a validated & solid concept we build a framework of the plan we are going to prepare. A typical business plan could have the following sections:
- Executive Summary
- Products and/or Services Summary
- Market Analysis
- Industry Analysis
- Sales Plan
- Marketing Plan
- Team & Management Plan
- SWOT & Operations
- Financials & Cashflow
We agree on the plan framework, and then begin building the content first, before we style. Once we have agreed on the content & positioning, we then get our team of graphic design experts to finesse and refine. They will put together a stunning, functional and editable document for you to present to your audience.
We present the business plan to you either in person or via video conference and walk you through each section. We give you strategies and the tools you need to confidently take your plan, implement it and get the most out of it.
