I’ve been busy this week, with posts about business planning appearing on my column at entrepreneur.com, my post on Industry Word, and a post on Amex OPEN Forum. Meanwhile, I had one of those travel disasters — boring, you know the drill — getting out of San Francisco. Well, not getting out of San Francisco, stuck instead in an airport hotel. So it seems a good time to share those three other posts:
- First, on my column at entrepreneur.com, 5 questions your business plan should answer. Hire people? Change locations? Change pricing? The idea is that if you keep a business plan alive, and maintain good planning process, then your business plan can answer those questions.
- Second, as a guest blogger on community.sba.gov, I posted 5 planning fundamentals for every business.
- And on Amex OPEN, the real heart of planning as management, steer your business with plan vs. actual.
All three of these are about real business planning, not just a business plan document, but running your business better.
