A Business Plan in How Many Pages?

You know you need a business plan -- you do. But you don't have the time or the money to devote to creating a multi-page, bound document that you're not sure how to use. Business planning doesn't have to be tough. Use the power of the One Page Plan to create a simple, living document that you can use daily to plan your business efforts.

I started using the One Page Plan a year ago and it changed the way my business grew. I could carry my plan with me and, if an opportunity came that was inconsistent with my plan, I could easily steer clear and stay focused on my business. All of the extraneous material was gone.

I work in a corporate environment and you'd think that a business plan would not be as useful. Just the opposite has been true for me. By using techniques from the one page business plan, I have been able to focus my departmental activities so that it is clear to both my senior management AND my staff what direction we are going in. I also use the plan to discuss with my internal customers how my department can help them get their products to market quicker through the use our departmental services.

It's been a big help.

Thanks Lalita. And you get right down to business in your blog. I'll have to focus more on value for readers.
