Business planning

Business planning

A business plan is used to serve a number of purposes:

• To secure support for the project or organisation that the plan relates to.
• To enable regular checking of progress and re-planning as necessary.
• To communicate to stakeholders.

The featured template outlines what should be covered and the supporting information that will be required. It may be that not all of this information will be included in the business plan but will be appended.

Refer to the developing services section of this guide for some idea's of the kinds of services you may wish to consider in developing your business plan. Refer also to the section on demonstrating community need to ensure there is a demand for any proposed services.
