A successful business plan can start with a hands-on workshop….

How every existing small to medium business can have clear direction….

We all know that having a business plan can make the difference between a successful start-up and a failed venture, but not all business owners and entrepreneurs recognise the importance of having one or does not have the time or skills to do one.

A survey by NAB (National Australia Bank) found that one third of Australian small businesses fail because they don’t have a business plan. Despite this, 40% of small businesses don’t have one, and 21% of Australian small business owners say they don’t have time to write one.

A business plan helps business owners:

  • Provides clarity on the future direction of the business;
  • Provide alignment of personal and business goals and objectives;
  • Creates focus;
  • Identifies all the actions required within a business to grow in a low risk manner;
  • Prioritises the often-multiple actions required within a business;
  • Provides practical and realistic recommendations suitable to a small to medium business with limited resources on how to implement the recommendations.

dVT Strategy have identified and understands the need in the market for this type of offering and have put together a package that is perfect for existing small to medium business owners looking to refresh their business plan or for start-up businesses wanting to establish and document their first strategy.

We have a four-step process comprising:

  1. An initial meeting and inspection of your work business environment and key people;
  2. Collection and analysis of background information;
  3. An approximately four-hour workshop;
  4. Presentation of a completed business plan and discussion of the findings.

Who would benefit?

Targeted at business owners from all stages of their business, whether it’s sole traders seeking to incorporate their business, start-ups, growth business or businesses seeking to turnaround and transform.  It is also useful for owners seeking business acumen and expertise to refresh their current strategy.
