A business plan is essential to help you maximise the profit potential of your business and achieve your own personal objectives.
At MD Consulting, we are experienced in preparing business plans for clients including start-ups and owner-managed enterprises and understand that a robust plan is the common factor linking many successful businesses.
Your business plan will not only set out your vision, showing where you are, where you want to be and how you are going to get there. It will also be vital in providing potential lenders and investors with the information they need to make funding decisions. An effective business plan will provide:
- a framework for cohesive decision-making: preparing the business plan will focus your ideas, helping you to define your vision and set your goals
- a way to communicate ideas to your team: your business plan should be an open document, enabling your team to share in your goals and contribute to achieving them
- a benchmark against which you can measure business performance: the plan should turn your vision into realistic financial and operational goals against which actual achievements can be regularly measured
- a reflection of the business strengths and abilities of the management team: it is vital to build on the strengths of your business and its key personnel, while minimising the risks arising from any weaknesses.
As part of drawing up your business plan, we can work with you to develop short, medium and long-term goals. These can then be translated into operational plans relating directly to different business functions along with key performance Indicators (KPIs) to help you monitor, review and improve business performance.
