Vision, Strategies and Plans for Start-Up and Small Business

I have written in the past about business plans being not very helpful, one of the reasons is that before you do the plan you need to have a vision and strategy.A complete business plan should consist of of three parts: Vision - is the first step in the "entrepreneurial" process, it does not talk about sales, turnover and cost.... oh, hang on, no sorry that one is gone already ;-)I think you should write yourself one of those sentences and then do a 12 month cash-flow based on this, if you then add a SWOT (Strength, Weakness, Opportunities and Threats) analysis to your plan - your are ready.Even if you have already started your business - remember most businesses get started accidentally - it is never to late to get a piece of paper and write your vision and strategy down, it focuses the mind.
