    Business Plans are needed in various situations. They are needed before any investment is about to be embarked upon. They are needed to convince any investor or the Bank to provide you the financing you need. They are needed as part of the normal planning of any business to be used as a benchmark as how things are actually developing versus how things were planned out. However, many times business plans end up being either mainly focused on financial forecasts, with little or no narrative that explains how the outlined forecasted financials stand a chance at becoming a reality. In other instances, Business Plans end up be an incoherent document, whereby the things said in the Business Plan do not really come together as one coherent plan based on a comprehensive analysis. Then business leaders or managers, are surprised as to why their Business Plan was not convincing enough for them to win the EU funding or the bank financing they are after.

    1. Business Plan as a coherent whole – What is the main drift?

    5. Workshop – Practical application of Business Planning techniques onto real life case studies.

    Why is the session of relevance to our members?

    You might have not been thought these techniques during the course of your studies, though Business Planning is becoming more relevant, both for the practitioner who owns his/her practice or even to advise other owners. Most Accountants focus on just the financial forecasts when it comes to Business Plans, without outlining how the forecasts they present can actually be achieved.

    Target Audience

    General.
