BackgrounD information

Business Plans are needed in various situations, whether before embarking on an investment or to support your case when approaching a bank or to apply for Eu Funds. They are an essential part of business planning. A business plan is used as a benchmark to evaluate the development vs. the plan of a business.

However, frequently business plans end up being either mainly focused on financial forecasts, with little or no narrative that explains how the outlined forecasted financials can be achieved. In other instances, business plans become an incoherent document, whereby the narrative does not outline coherent plan based on a comprehensive analysis.

It is not surprising that business plans are not convincing enough and are not well received to access EU funding or the bank financing.

Topics on the agenda

1. Business Plan as a coherent whole – What is the main drift?
2. Broad outline of a Business Plan
3. Internal Analysis
4. External Analysis
5. Knowledge Management
6. Critical Success Factors
8. Strategic Options
9. SFA Analysis
10. Business Transformation
11. Financials

Topics on the agenda 

1. Recap of 1st Session
2. Managing Change
3. Leadership
4. Communication Skills – Persuasion
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.
