Course overview

Knowing how to write a business plan is essential for your business. Any successful business will have a track record in determining not only which projects are funded through to completion, but also those that aren't taken forward.

Writing a business plan helps you to create a well-constructed business plan that enables decision makers to better understand the potential project. It also helps the owner of the business plan to fully think through the project so it can be used as a benchmarker to track the success of the project.
