An Australian Business Planning manual to assist with writing your own quality Business Plan. Use this manual to write and to kick start the implementation of your own Business Plan Ideal planning aid and / or work book


This manual is the result of both real life Business Planning - in both the writing and mentoring process of Business Planning - and academic studies involving lecturing and tutoring in Business Planning to a diverse range of business students and business people.

This publication in manual form is intended as an aid and prompt for those who wish to write their own Business Plan. It is generally agreed that a Business Plan will greatly assist any business to commence, grow and prosper, as well as assist in raising finance and venture capital.

In Australia in particular, formal Business Planning has not been widely practised or adhered to, and it is only in fairly recent years that it has become almost mandatory in some instances.

A Business Plan should be a dynamic document and not sit on the shelf after it has been finalised. A Business Plan should be constantly referred to and constantly updated, taking into account market forces and the constant change involved in most industries.

We also have a Business Planning Training Facilitators Manual available.
