Do I need a plan for my business?
The answer to that question is YES, you do!
We Believe in the Power of Planning
Now YOUR next question is what type of plan. That will depend on where you are in your business and what your most pressing need is at the moment.
We offer several planning prescriptions based on your response to our business assessment, the BizMi.
The Business Plan – The business plan is your road map to business success. When you begin conceptualizing your idea for a company, you want to do the appropriate research and then develop a plan. Your business plan gives a thorough view of your business, competition, financial projections, market and industry. A business plan is appropriate whether you are seeking outside financing or not.

The Strategic Plan – The strategic plan helps you to really clarify your vision, mission, goals and objectives and develop mid- term strategies (3 to 5 years) as well as short-term action plans for your company or organization. When you consider the decisions you’re making on a daily basis to move your company forward, they should line up with the vision and direction of your company. Strategic_Planning Overview
Strategy Saturday – Strategy Saturday is designed for smaller companies with teams of 2 to 10 that need to clarify their vision and mission and set some specific goals. Companies come out with a clear vision and mission, concrete milestones and a 90 day action plan for implementation. What’s included?
Marketing Plan – What strategies, outreach efforts, and tactics will you employ to reach your targeted market? Who are you trying to reach and how will you reach them cost effectively? The marketing plan helps you to build out these strategies, take a look at your targeted market and determine how to budget accordingly. What’s included?
90-Day Action Plan – What the very next step? What should you do tomorrow? After you’ve developed a good strategy you need to know what to do next, the “right now” stuff. This is a place where many get stuck. It can be challenging to really determine the most effective actions to take each day to get you closer to your ultimate vision. The action plan allows you to break down your longer term strategies into concrete action items that will make it clear what you need to do next.
