Business plans are critical tools for business growth and development. They will vary depending on the needs of the organisation. This unit covers the typical elements of a business plan and the standard approaches to be used in implementing a business plan.
The business plan should be supported by a strategic plan, and may also be supported by a marketing plan and cash flow forecasts.
