Yes, you've seen outlines for a business plan. But how do you actually sit down and write one? The answer is: you don't. Not as the first step, at least. First, you have a fair amount of homework to do.

Homework such as defining your target market; sizing and segmenting that market; developing a competitive strategy; validating that your service or product fills an unmet need; value pricing your product. And the list goes on.

In this seminar, OTBC Executive Director Steve Morris will review the different objectives you might have for writing a business plan, and the homework you need to do before you write the plan - and then will review what goes into the plan. You'll leave with a detailed action plan for preparing to write a business plan -- and with an outline of what should be in the plan. The good news: once you've done your homework, writing a business plan isn't that difficult!

Who should attend: any entrepreneur or small business owner who needs to develop a strategy and a plan for launching or growing their business.
