Business Plan Examples Guide
A business plan is a document that is
used to project how a company will be doing three to five years in the
future and describes how and by what means, a company will use its
resources to grow and maintain revenues. The business plan also takes
into account the basic elements of promotional strategies, operational
requirements, financial projections and market research. The central
focus of a business model describes what will be used to operate a
business. The plan will also be used to expand the business, raise
capital, reorganize resources and activities, downsizing data or
preparation for sell-out.
In Part IV you will need a page on Supporting Documents. This includes personal resumes, owner’s financial statements, credit reports, Copies of Leases, Mortgages, Purchase Agreements, Etc. Letters of Reference Contracts and other needed documents.
Once you have completed your business plan, it should read and look professional—professional enough that an investor or lender will know that it was done by you and be impressed in its professional presentation. Your business plan should be about 30-40 pages.
Business plan examples can also be seen in the the start-up business plan. With this business plan, steps for a new business are defined. Topics that should be defined in this plan are: product or service, market ideas, forecasts, strategy, milestones and how they will be achieved, your management team and financial analysis. Other business plan examples can be found in the internal business plan. Often with this kind of plan main points are covered by using PowerPoint slides. The operations plan is an internal plan. This plan is much more detailed—stating specifically how dates, deadlines, milestones and responsibilities of managers and teams—are implemented.
A strategic business plan is one that is internal; however it focuses more on pinpointing main priorities and high-level options. In addition a growth plan often focuses on a certain area of a business. These plans can be internal but it would depend on if they would be associated with new investments or loan applications.
