This is a crucially important area. Many owners are too busy managing the day-to-day running of their business to take time out to look ahead and formulate strategic plans.
Yet without long-term plans, management tends to become reactive rather than proactive, making decisions with long-term implications based on short-term considerations. As a consequence opportunities are overlooked and hidden dangers remain unnoticed.
The starting point of many of your decisions should be the production of a sound, balanced business plan which reflects what you want to achieve with your business in the years ahead, and how you intend to achieve this. The production of a business plan can also be linked to the raising of finance, and a quality business plan can prove critical to a successful fundraising.
