The business plan is a written proposal that identifies the intended company, analyzes the business situation, lists planned operations, and projects financial data. It puts your business ideas into written form. Planning is critical to a successful business. Types of plans vary according to the needs of the business. For example, plans may be long-term and/or short-term; simple or complex; detailed or general; lengthy or brief. The specific needs of the business should include: purpose and objectives; expansion or curtailment strategies under consideration; possible new products; financing needs; and identification of problems and potential solutions. The primary purpose of business planning is to ensure profitability. Planning helps you determine the purpose of the business. It also helps you know where you are, where you want to go, and how to get there. A plan gives you a path to follow as you seek your goals. It provides details for potential lenders to examine. Lenders must gain insight into your situation before deciding whether or not to lend you money. The business plan serves as a communication tool to consultants, advisers, investors, future employees and suppliers who need to learn about your operation and objective.
