A quick guide as to why a company needs a well researched business plan.
1 More companies stay in business.
Studies by organisations such as business link show that companies that are in business and generate higher than average profits mostly have a business plan that they follow.
2. You can understand what to do.
Not knowing why things go wrong, why customers dont buy or return, why your competitors are better or more respected than you is a recipe for disaster. Your plan will help you analyse your business
3. You can allocate resources better.
No company can do everything. You will need to prioritise the work required in the coming year. Choose no more than 7/8 key projects to work on and you will see the results.
4. You will understand your finances.
If you are always overdrawn at the bank or find it difficult to get new finance then youll need to forecast your sales and costs. But what are they? Work all of this out with your plan.
5. Everyone is aware of your plans.
You and your staff, bank manager and other interested parties all need to know the direction the company is going. This is important to pull everyone into the same direction and develop good teamwork.
Planning helps you understand your business. It can be frustrating when there are no customers about and you dont know why.
