Business Planning

“The business plan is more than a document. First and foremost, it is a process; a process that enables an individual, and more importantly a team, to come together and commit to a business adventure of significant personal and professional risk.

The business plan is a process that evaluates the opportunity, quantifies the resources required and lays out a road map for implementation. The business plan integrates all the functional elements- marketing, sales, operations and finance into a single cohesive force.”
