The business plan is your primary document for developing a new business, whether it is a completely new enterprise or just an offshoot of an exiting firm. The business plan defines:
|What the business is (the description)|
|How it will be promoted (the plan)|
|How it will be financed (the finance plan), and|
|How it will be operated (the management plan)|
In addition to the above, the business plan should also include an executive summary, supporting documentation, and financial projections. Also, you should have a highly-visual version of the plan, such as Power Poin presentation available with which to make oral presentations.
