Writing a Business Plan – Online Course

Successful businesses and investors will have a track record in determining not only which projects are funded through to completion but also those that aren’t taken forward. One key tool in the decision making process is the business plan.

Writing a Business Plan helps you to create a well-constructed business plan that enables decision makers to better understand the potential project, helps the owner of the business plan to fully think through the project and can then also be used as a benchmark to track the success of the project.
