Putting a robust business plan in place is important for the future of every business. When you first start up a new company, you will have a business plan in place. However, unless one is required in order to apply for finance, then they are usually forgotten about. This is a mistake, as a good plan will help to keep you focused on the way the business is running, and where it will be going in the future.
A business plan is not something that should be filed away, never to be looked at again. It needs to be something that was well researched and is financially viable. The plan is there to give the business direction. Many business owners have ignored their plans in the past, and diversified without looking into what they are doing. In most cases, this kind of behavior will cost the business money, at worst, it can wipe it out. This is why it is essential to keep referring to the plan, and make adjustments based on in depth research.
