Creating a business plan gives you the chance to think about what it is you really want from your business, set goals, and work out what actions you must take to reach them, keeping you on track to building a successful, profitable business. Many business owners get caught up working in the business rather than on it, doing day to day tasks, and they neglect to take a step back and spend some time looking at the bigger picture.
Start working on the business, rather than in the business
We understand that it can be incredibly challenging running a business. Sometimes you have to take on the role of almost every team member, becoming so busy that you feel as if you don’t have any time to look at the structure of the business. However, if you want your business to be successful, you must.
The key benefits of creating a business plan
- Review and set business direction
- Align goals amongst the directors
- Identify Gross Revenue Targets and Key Performance Indicators
- Establish a robust accountability system
- Identify critical challenges and opportunities in your business and the actions required to resolve or maximise them
- Set timeframes for achieving goals
- Identify what support and resources you will need to achieve your goals
- Enables you to communicate your business goals and vision with your team
- Provides a platform to develop Financial Forecasts
- Use as a basis to set team members’ individual goals and targets
Any time is a good time to complete a Business Plan. Business Planning is crucial if you’re considering a new business venture.
How Rosslyn Associates can help you
We provide a business planning service which will keep you on track to build the business you want. Our Business Development offerings are practical and tangible services that help to create long term value.
An effective business planning process gets to the heart and soul of your business. Upon completion of ‘pre-work’ we’ll have a greater understanding of your vision and core values in order to facilitate a four-hour planning session to help you create a clear and concise Business Plan.
This session will require you to take time out from day to day activities in the business to focus on the business. Together we’ll review your past performance and clarify your future direction.
We’ll enable you to review actual performance against targets and establish a 90-day action plan to address immediate and critical issues. You’ll set solid and realistic business goals and define strategies for achieving them.
At the end of the session your easy to understand one-page Business Plan will act as a guide for you (and your team) to successfully implement your desired changes. It will ensure your business is on course for success.
We host regular complimentary webinars to help business owners develop successful businesses, giving them more money, more free time, and less stress. Take a look at our events page here for more information about our next event! We hope you can make it along.
