What is Business Planning?

What is Business Planning? | My Can Do Networks Sx Scoops | Scoop.it

Many people get nervous when they feel that they need to make a business plan. Some small businesses even start their activities without having a proper business plan. A business plan is basically a tool that helps to give direction and confidence to run or to start a business. In fact, it describes about how your business should run and what actions you need to take, including your both short-term and long-term business goals.

Business Plan 101: Why You Need One, What's In It

Business Plan 101:  Why You Need One, What's In It | My Can Do Networks Sx Scoops | Scoop.it
From blogs.findlaw.com - September 10, 5:02 PM 

To start, or not to start, that's the question you've been pondering for some time.  Wherever you are in the decision process -- even if you've already started -- consider writing a business plan, because you are after all, starting a business.
 

Why You Need a Business Plan
A business plan is your road map; it allows you to set goals and form strategies. If you take the process seriously and do some soul searching, you may find that what you actually want, is different from what you thought you wanted. Well-written business plans can also be used as a sales tool whether you're trying to get financing, bring on a partner, or get bought out by a larger firm.

Crowdfunding is growing fast: in 2011, a comprehensive review put the industry’s size at $1.5 billion, and projected that it would grow to $2.8 billion by the end of 2012. Crowdfunding is also becoming more diverse: platforms now exist that make it possible to put money towards everything from equity investments in businesses to interest-bearing loans for solar energy to donations for music, film, and art projects.

I agree with Ian's suggestion and do not feel confident with the current Board makeup as is.  I would have thought it was obvious?!  I would always encourage broad representation on any Board or Committee; specifically including the necessary skills and expertise in order to run efficiently; meet equalities and act as a role model whilst achieving aims.  Some Charities manage it.
