business planningBusiness planning is the key to getting things done and making things happen, it is necessary for success. A well thought out business plan increases the chances of a business succeeding.

Someone once said “People don’t plan to fail, they fail to plan!”, they were right.

Business Advice Tasmania works with many business owners who are so busy they:

  • Have forgotten how to plan;
  • Don’t know where to start;
  • Believe it is too complicated;
  • Don’t understand the numbers in their business; and
  • Do anything other than put their ideas down to paper.

The purpose of a business plan is to:

  • Capture market and business information in one place;
  • Match the paths of personal business plans and objectives; and
  • Act as a communication tool between the business and personal and business stakeholders and advisers.

What is really important is that businesses largely develop their own plan. “who plans the plan, should work the plan”.

Business Advice Tasmania has developed a program for business and industry groups to enhance participant’s skills in planning their business.
