Is Your Business Plan Serving You?

Is your business plan realistic? Whether you are running a small, local business or a large, multinational corporation, you will have a business plan with projections about where you want to be. How does this compare with where you are? If you’re meeting your targets consistently and reaching or exceeding your financial projections, sit back, you’re getting it right. However, if your results are not matching up to your targets in any area of your business, or if you would like to be doing better, now could be a great time to take a look at your business plan and implement change.

If you feel that it’s time to shift your business success into a higher gear, it’s important to approach your planning with a healthy dose of honesty and realism. Starting with your business plan, it’s time to go back to basics and question everything you’re doing, so that you can see where you can make sustainable changes to help your business grow.

Focus Your Business Growth This Year

When analyzing your business plan, there are many areas in which you can consider making changes or developing your projections, and these include the following:

  1. Your skills.

    What are your competencies? It’s important to be realistic about what your company can offer, and to be prepared to develop your skills, or those of your team, in order to widen your reach if necessary.

  2. Your team.

    Without a staff team you can rely on, it’s not possible to develop and grow your business satisfactorily. Further training, movement of personnel or even seeking new team members who can provide the skills and dynamism you need, can help you to build a team you can trust and invest in, in the knowledge that they are committed and loyal to you and your business.

  3. Your networks.

    Are you reaching all of the potential clients you would like to be working with? Addressing your marketing strategy and being prepared to embrace new ideas can make a world of difference to the scale of success you are able to attain.

  4. Your future plans.

    Is your practice true to your ethos? Identifying your goals and being honest and realistic about how you can reach them can bring insights that can take your business to the next level, and can encourage you to take challenging steps to create progress.
