About this Event

Planning360. The simplest way to plan any business so you actually end up where you want.

Business planning is possibly the most neglected and misunderstood part of just about any business. According to statistics, less than 17% of businesses do any form of planning and probably many of them don't do them the right way, possibly never look at it again once it's done and as a result, miss the opportunities of really taking a business to the next level.As has been said many times, business owners "don't plan to fail, they just fail to plan"!Many businesses often say they have a plan, but it's all too often just a number or a goal and a goal without a plan is simply just a wish or a hope, that you'll get where you want.A business plan is a formal (or semi formal) document that contains the business goals, how these goals will be attained and the time frame within which these goals will be achieved.According to a survey by Small Business Trends, a business plan can potentially double the chance of success of a business. According to a survey of over 11,000 businesses:

  • Businesses that planned, grew 30% faster
  • And 71% of the fastest growing companies use a business plan.

And on the opposite side of those results, 80% of businesses fail in the first five years, yet only 17% do any form of planning. To me, that in itself is the key reason to do even a simple plan.There are only a few reasons that stop businesses owners from planning.

  1. They don't know what to do to complete one.
  2. They don't know why they do it
  3. Don't really have an understanding what it is. 
  4. And it's too complicated and so don't.

The idea behind completing even a simple business plan is pretty straight forward. Know where your going, how you'll get there and by when. Everything else is just hope and sheer luck. In this 2 hour workshop you'll learn how simple it is, to complete an Business360 EzyPlan that can be used as an ongoing business growth tool, to keep your business ontrack, to where you want it to go. Here's what you'll learn.

  • How to review where your business is now, and what it's capable of doing.
  • Conduct a simple review of clients and products and where the opportunist are.
  • Analise each key driver of the business, to identify where the highest return on invest opportunities are, that will get the biggest and fastest growth.
  • A simple SWOT analysis
  • Set achievable goals of where you want the business to be in over the next 12 to 24 months.
  • Identify what key drivers need to improve or change to get the result needed.
  • Design a strategic and structure list of everything possible in rod of priority to grow the business.
  • And lastly set time review management process to ensure your on track and if not, what to do about it.

Plus we'll take it one step further. Cashflow planning. Businesses can only grow, by doing the things they need, if they have cash. Recent data revealed that the average business has less than 21 days of cash reserves. The reason is simple, they currently base their business on what it does, not what it needs to grow.

Our EzyPlan and EzyCashFlow process should take no more than 30 minutes to do, once you've done it once and begin to understand what the numbers all mean and what it takes to get the result you want.99.9% of business will find that completing and working from an EzyPlan is all they will ever need to ensure they and their team know what the objectives of the business are and how they'll get there. At some point if the business needs to go down the road of securing capital, attracting investors or even exiting, then a little more detail might be needed.Having a business plan doesn't guarantee success, but it certainly gives you a better chance of getting there, a clear direction of where you're going, what you need to do to get there and when reviewed regularly can be used as a support management tool to ensure whose on track and whose not.
