Strategic Business Planning
You must plan for your business
Planning is an essential ingredient when managing any activity successfully, and your business is no exception. If you fail to plan, you plan to fail, and unfortunately many businesses can bear testimony to this well worn saying.
EQAS Business Development can develop a business plan for your organisation that will, in a structured way, ensure you look at all the necessary aspects of your business. No longer can you just be good at the technical aspects of your business; you must also plan to be in control of the management and entrepreneurial aspects of the operation.
Practical planning will help discover important aspects of your business
Our business plans involve a practical diagnosis of your whole business operation. Together with your people we examine each aspect of your business, document the facts and analyse them as a team to help you look at your business as you may never have done before. We look at the facts related to:
- your customers and other potential markets
- your competitors and what they are achieving
- your own product or service and how it is performing
- your business environment and the forces over which you have no control
The business plan will show what you must do to succeed
By analysing all this information you will understand clearly your competitive advantage, and recognise exactly what products and services you should focus on and to whom you should direct them.
The business plan will therefore outline all the activities that should be implemented in each area of your business, and what marketing, human, financial or other resource requirement that is needed to make your business succeed.
