Why Attend

The course introduces a pragmatic and process-based approach to developing and implementing business plans. The course offers participants the tools to transform ideas into strategic goals and to outline the operational and financial strategies needed to achieve these goals. The course expands on how to use the business plan as a communication, negotiation and persuasion tool. This is critical when collaborating across different aspects of the business plan is required.

A well written business plan should provide decision makers with enough insights to assist them in deciding the viability and feasibility of new ideas, strategies and initiatives. This course is designed with this key objective in mind.


Course Methodology

This course is highly interactive. From the onset, participants find themselves engaged in identifying business initiatives or opportunities within their company or on their own. Subsequently, they embark on developing the required business plan. The course follows a workshop approach where teams are formed, roles are defined and every team member contributes to the development of the business plan. Participants get the opportunity to work with different types of business analysis tools to evaluate and decide the direction of their ideas or initiatives. In addition, teams will present their work to the other teams in the class and they will end up with a complete business plan which they may share with their colleagues and superiors at work if they choose to.
