Business Plan Layout

by Alan Gleeson

Business Plan Layout or Business Plan Outline

The first point to make with regard to a business plan layout (also known as a business plan outline) is that there is no one typical layout. Business plans are unique and the layout will be dependent on a number of factors, not least the purpose of the business plan, but also whether the plan relates to a new start up or an existing business. In Business Plan Pro, for instance, we ask a number of targeted questions as the planning process starts which then serve to shape the subsequent business plan layout.

Although the layout itself can vary, every business plan needs a number of crucial components.

It needs to start with an executive summary (typically written at the end of the process) so as to whet the appetite of the reader (often a prospective investor).

It then needs to follow a particular structure which will include details about the opportunity, those tasked with delivering the idea, and the financing required to bring the idea to market.

Within Business Plan Pro, you get a recognised business plan layout which can be fully customized so that you can tailor it to meet your own individual requirements.

I am looking for a business plan to present to my funders (Bank)for a Coffin/Casket manufacturing business. My main market segment will be selling my products to Funeral Undertakers but also to the general public. This will be a new venture, but I have attended a course in the manufacturing of these products.
Can you please assist in the drawing up of a winning Business Plan, that will enable me to secure funding from the Bank.
