As we kick of the new year, I would like to suggest you create a business plan that adds value to your business and helps you and your staff accelerate the success of your business.
Do I need a business plan? This is a common question I get asked. Hell yes, but make sure it’s one that adds value to your business.
Do you have a good template? Yes, I have several depending on your needs.
Business Planning is one of those tasks, that for most business owners it falls into the category of: “I know I should have one” or “waiting for things to get quiet” .
A business plan done correctly will add value to the business on a daily basis, rather than be a chore best left for MBA students.
Building on the successful formula from my “Power Pitching” and “Essential Guide to Capital” workshops, I have decided to introduce a number of new workshop titles to the GMC portfolio. Having observed numerous businesses around the country and reviewed thousands of business plans I have spent the first week of this year collating my thoughts on the topic and have created a new workshop to attack this very topic.
Can you be assured that you and all your staff are focused on and doing stuff that meets the following list?
- Adds value to customers
- Makes money
- Fits a clear and productive business model
- Is fun and in line with a designed performance culture
- Fits your master plan
The workshop will introduce you to some visual tools to document your plan in diagrams rather than just long borig text that no one reads. You will also get a chance to use the BisVision card system for business planning. The aim of the workshop is to give you the tools and techniquesto develop a developing a business plan that will inspire and motivate you and your staff.
