Enterprise business plan

Which business to open? What do I want from my business? Do I need a business plan? – such a set of questions torments sleepless nights of future entrepreneurs. And if you can answer the first two of them only personally, then we are ready to give a confident and clear answer to the third: of course, a business plan is needed!

But the format of the business plan and, ultimately, the fate of your future business will depend on why you need it. For example, if you open a small and not too complicated enterprise like a self-service car wash or resale of goods, it will be enough to compile a small table of income and expenses in Exel only to make sure that you do not go bankrupt.

So, let’s imagine that an ordinary worker in one of the Russian companies had a brilliant idea on how to reduce production losses. From this moment, he has several options:

do nothing, following the principle of “initiative is punishable”;
go to the immediate boss and try to convince him of the prospects of the proposal;
Describe your thoughts and send them to a special mail to collect ideas, if any.
In all these options, the chance that the idea will be realized, even if it is really sensible, tends to zero. The boss may not realize the value of the proposal, and top managers can’t get to the mailbox, which they started several months ago, following the fashion. Continue reading
