Is this course for me?
All businesses need business plans, whether they are a newly opened grocery store, an independent graphic designer who is a entrepreneur, a large international organisation or a small local organisation. They provide a path and a clear action plan for the future of the business; considering opportunities and challenges, minimising risks, helping with financing and ultimately increasing success.

This course is for anyone who would like more information about business plans, to better understand their components and how to write them effectively.
