About the business plan template

It’s essential that every business has a Strategic Plan or even a simple one-page business plan in place. Strategy State has taken the hassle out of the planning process by creating a simple to use business plan template that anyone can use.

This business plan template is built for businesses at any stage or size. It’s simple yet effective and only takes around 20 minutes to fill out. We have removed all the complicated business jargon to make it as easy as possible.

We all know that business is challenging, and it's no secret that many companies struggle or even fail and go under at times. The main reason is mainly due to a lack of planning and execution.

By having a business plan in place, you greatly increase the chances of success. Business plans help you discover key things about your competitors, how you will brand your products or services, what sets you apart from the competition, and how you will execute your plan.

The business planning process is also a significant first step in developing your monthly reporting. It will help you outline what initiatives need to be actioned each month to ensure success. From this, you can easily develop KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) that will drive your business forward. 

What should be included in a business plan?

Our business plan template covers all the essential areas.

These include: 

Overview, Industry Analysis, Customer Analysis, Competitive Analysis, Marketing Plan, Operations Plan, Management Team, Financial Plan, and Technology.

With our business plan template, you can easily update it as your business develops over time. If one thing is true about business, we know that it is always changing. You may want to evaluate your business plan every three months to remind yourself what you should be focusing on. 

This free business plan template works great when developing a business after it has been fully evaluated using Strategy State’s Business Evaluation Tool.
