The business plan

Businessplan I

A business plan is a decisive factor for your success. It can range from 10 pages to 30+ pages. It always depends on the purpose of the business plan. Do you need a business plan just for yourself so that you can evaluate your idea? Need one for the JobCenter to start your self-employment. Or do you need a business plan for an investor so that you get seed capital. It may also be that you need a business plan for a limited project.

I’ll tell you how to decide for what purpose you need a plan, what the benefits are and what the business plan requirements are.

Why I need a business plan:

A business plan has many features that are beneficial to you. There is the orientation, control and monitoring function. The business plan also builds trust and helps you to get financing for your business or project.

Orientation function

The orientation function of the business plan helps you to comprehensively review your project in advance. This will allow you to systematically analyze your business idea and check that the planning is based on realistic conditions. From this you can derive measures and alternatives, reflect upon new possibilities and check their feasibility. Especially at the beginning of your business you can make such major adjustments quickly, which could lead after the “point of no return” to overhasty and costly restructuring measures.

Control function

In the control function, the business plan fulfills the task of presenting a temporal coordination and delegation of the tasks. The business plan helps you to control the actual implementation of your start-up planning. If several team members are involved in the start-up project, the pressure within the team is divided.

Monitoring function

The business plan is not a static concept. It has to be constantly updated in order to continue to provide orientation. Thus, the business plan is used as a controlling instrument. This enables you to compare the respective key figures with the requirements of the business plan in the sense of a target / actual analysis. This enables you to carry out a more efficient risk management and thus initiate appropriate countermeasures.

Confidence building

The business plan should build trust on external target groups. These include external addressees such as potential suppliers, customers and media as well as potential strategic cooperation partners. An increase in the trust of the external addressees can be realized by giving them a deeper insight into the company and thus allowing your investors to see opportunities and risks.

Raising capital

According to the Kfw Founding Monitor 2010, 70% of all founders have a need for external financing. From this the second external task of the business plan can be deduced, the raising of capital. The external addressees are subdivided into investors, partners and customers.

Which chapters has a business plan?

The executive summary of your business plan is one of the most significant chapters and has the purpose, e.g. To give investors a first insight into their business idea. It aims to arouse curiosity and to keep all essential information of the entire business plan at a glance. It contains the most important facts of a business plan, which are described in detail in the individual main chapters.

Even if the executive summary is often prefixed to the table of contents, it will be written at the end! In order to avoid mistakes and to keep track, it is recommended that you show the Executive Summary after completion. This will allow you to quickly and easily see if your Executive Summary is comprehensive in content.

In particular, it is important that you justify the underlying figures and associated assumptions and select realistic numbers.

Comprehensibility

The business plan is the document with which you want to convince the reader of yourself and your startup project. Therefore, a business plan may not contain spelling or spelling mistakes in addition to spelling or typing errors. In addition, your business plan must be understandable to readers who do not have specialist expertise. In this context, there must also be a red thread in the form of a straightforward and clear structure in the business plan.

Quality of informations

The assumptions you make and the resulting decisions must have a solid foundation. The quality of the information can range from verbal information on opinions to expert opinions and representative samples. The deciding factor is, if the data has not been collected, the reputation and integrity of the source of information. Also, a careful planning of the financial data in the business plan is recommended, since otherwise a utopian representation of the company could arise.

Scope of information

For you, it is crucial that the business plan is considering all relevant areas of the company as completely as possible in your planning. However, you should make sure that the business plan remains legible. He must not flood the reader with information, so that central statements, such as the benefits of the business idea, are not perceived. This can make the business plan uninteresting.

Time planning horizon

Your business plan also has a temporal planning horizon. Thus, in addition to a short-term, a medium and long-term planning is proposed. As a rule, the planning horizon is between three and five years.

External shape

An additional positive impression can be achieved via an appealing graphical design. This has the effect that the business plan additionally attracts attention and interest.
