When was the last time you reviewed your business plan?

As you would agree to run a successful business, planning needs to be at the forefront.  Your business plan needs to include all facets of business including your financial position.

Strategic planning entails looking at known peaks and troughs in your business through analysing past performances and what you have planned for the future.  We also look at the number of weeks there are in different months to cater for increased month expenses.  You can use strategic planning to ensure cashflow is consistent over your Christmas shutdown period.

Business planning needs to be considered in all stages of business and become a working part of your business.

There is no point putting together a business plan and stashing it in the cupboard never to be seen again.  Before you close this Christmas dust off your plan and ensure it is still in line with your direction.
