You know that to write an effective business plan you need a format, an outline, a structure, to organize your thoughts, ideas, and information.
To provide you with the structure and simplify the process, the Kansas SBDC at FHSU has designed the Business Plan Tool. The Business Plan Tool is a dynamic tool that will help:
- enhance your knowledge
- stimulate your thoughts
- generate ideas
- organize your information
- capture your notes
- and print out your plan in a professional format
The online tool is broken down into four key plan areas: finance, marketing, operations, and strategy. It includes over 26 interactive videos (30 minutes to 1.5 hours each) as well as a series of questions that help you identify the who, what, when, how, and why of your business.
At each step in the process, you’ll have one-click access to email a Kansas SBDC advisor that can assist you as well as videos that explain the various concepts of the plan.
We encourage you to use this tool to develop your plan, investigate your market and industry, draft your numbers, examine options, and prepare for how you will operate.
