Business Plans Aren’t Just for Startups

Bplans Blog:

Ask the owner of a small-to-medium company about a business plan. Expect the answer: “Business plan? but I’m not a start-up. Why would I want a business plan?”

They don’t all answer that way, but too many do, and it’s a shame. The business planning process is such a great tool for growing a business, but so many people dismiss it as a one-time plan used only to start a company or raise financing. That myth of the business plan for start-ups only gets in the way far too often. If you own or run a company, you probably want to grow it. And if you want to grow a company, then you want to plan that growth. And the planning is only the beginning; you want to use the full planning process to manage growth.
