Our Business Plan Template provides a step by step guide that allows you to fill in the form and print it for future reference. Keep in mind that a business plan is a living document and grows with you as your business grows, it also serves as a guide to provide focus and direction for business decisions.
While there isn't a universally applied format, a business plan generally consists of the following information:
- A Cover Page
- An Index Page (Table of Contents)
- Executive Summary
- Business Overview
- Management Team
- Industry and Market Analysis
- Operations Plan
- Financial Plan
Visit Business Plan Outline for the details of each section.
While it's a pretty simple business plan template, it provide the basic framework for what needs to be in a business plan and where it should go. We offer several business plan samples that provide more insight on how each section may look once you complete the plan. It is also important to know that the executive summary is the last part of the plan that gets written.
