Business Planning

A Business Plan is an important document for any business to have, even more so in the current economic and business environment. A Business Plan may be required externally by Banks or potential Investors but equally as important it also serves a purpose internally in communicating your vision for the business to senior management and trusted employees. By committing to a written Business Plan, a business has something to benchmark itself against in terms of measuring success and helps the decision making process, in short it is a vital document in any business. 

Writing a business plan forces a thought process in the author that he or she may not previously have undertaken in any formal manner. It will require an introvert look at the business to identify the Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Treats of the business and the individuals responsible for running it. It’s not for the fainthearted and will require an honest self assessment which at times may be difficult. At Quintas we have the expertise to assist a business owner to write a business plan, but equally to revisit it on a regular basis to benchmark the business outcomes against its objectives.
