Business Plan

A business plan is a written document that describes all the aspects of a business venture in a concise manner. It is usually necessary to have a written business plan to raise money and attract high-quality business partners. Writing a business plan forces an entrepreneur to think carefully through all the aspects of a business venture. It also helps a new venture establish a set of milestones that can be used to guide the early –phases of the business rollout.

However, even Dell or Microsoft has versions, of such comprehensive plans. They often label it their “long-term” or perhaps “strategic” plan.
