7 Student Workbook Section 1 Develop a Business Plan Section 1 Develop a Business Plan This section covers the skills and knowledge required to develop a business plan. Scenario: DIY Realty DIY Realty is a new business formed by Tim Smith and Nathan Miles. They have identified the need for a new real estate model that facilitates the sale of real estate without the need of an agency, or agent. The premise of DIY Realty is to eliminate the so called middle man, so that a greater margin is obtained for the vendor as a result of the sale. Tim and Nathan have identified the need to develop a business plan to obtain a loan to start up their new business idea. They have already identified their mission, strategic plan and operational plan goals. Tim and Nathan believe that developing a business plan will help them to: clarify their goals determine realistic targets and objectives evaluate their strengths and weaknesses in the market, to maximise the potential of the organisation. Tim and Nathan both understand that having a good idea does not necessarily translate into guaranteed business success. Anyone lending them money or investing in their company will want to see evidence that the business is viable, has a long-term plan, can utilise resources and any manage potential threats to achieving their goals and objectives. What skills will you need? In order to develop a business plan, you must be able to: review and evaluate pre-existing strategic, business and operational plans, if available analyse and interpret business vision, mission, values and objectives consult with key stakeholders review market requirements for the product or service develop performance objectives and measures identify financial, human and physical resource requirements for the business consider any permits or licences that may be required for new activities.

8 Section 1 Develop a Business Plan Student Workbook Why develop a business plan? A business plan is a document used by managers to communicate a business idea, and obtain approval or financial support that will allow the idea to be implemented. A business plan serves four critical functions: 1. Allows managers and business owners to research and plan business goals and strategies from a realistic and considered basis, and to focus their energies and resources appropriately. 2. Ensures that all aspects of business planning, including risks and market conditions, are factored in to provide clarity and direction for the organisation. 3. Provides managers or business owners with a document they can use to communicate with key stakeholders or third parties such as banks, shareholders, employees or investors. 4. Documents performance goals and objectives which can be measured and used to benchmark actual performance against planned performance criteria. Even if organisations are not seeking external financing or trying to attract investors, a business plan can be used within the organisation as a focus for planning, monitoring and reviewing business performance. Below are some examples of internal and external uses of business plans. Internal Implementation of a new system, process or piece of equipment that requires a financial investment. To achieve growth targets. To increase market share. To ensure the ongoing profitability of the organisation. External To seek investors in a new business venture or existing business. To secure funds from a financial institution to purchase a business. To assist you with running your own business. To obtain a grant or regulatory approval. A business plan generally follows a specific format (to be explored in more detail in Section 2), including: the business objectives how and when these objectives will be achieved the resources required to achieve objectives. 1 1 B.

9 Student Workbook Section 1 Develop a Business Plan Reflection: Principles of business planning Use the link below to access the business planning fact sheet developed by the South Australian Department of Trade and Economic Development. This fact sheet provides useful information regarding the principles of business planning: Government of South Australia, Starting your business, Department of State Development viewed August 2015, < starting-your-business>. Review existing strategic, business and operational plans Prior to developing a business plan, managers must review and evaluate their organisation s existing strategic, business and operational plans to ensure that the objectives of the plan are aligned with the organisation s goals. Strategic plans are the road map for an organisation and its employees. They incorporate the values, vision and mission of the organisation, and detail the strategies and actions required to achieve the organisation s goals. Strategic plans typically look ahead three to five years. Operational plans are the how to for achieving strategic business goals. They detail the specific actions of how an organisation s strategic goals will be achieved. The information contained in existing strategic, business and operational plans that will be reviewed and analysed may include: Actions plans A detailed breakdown of specific activities, timeframes and responsibilities for achieving planned goals and objectives. When developing a business plan, you need to be aware of business activities, timeframes and resources required, including human and financial resources. Reviewing action plans will provide details on these areas and ensure that the business plan is realistic and an accurate representation of the organisation. Business goals Business goals document the organisation s desired outcomes. This is what the business hopes to achieve as a result of their activities and actions. When developing a business plan, understanding business goals is critical, as the plan must support the business goals and document how the organisation plans to market, finance and act in order to achieve the business goals.

10 Section 1 Develop a Business Plan Student Workbook Competitor analysis Most organisations are competing with similar businesses to attract market share. When analysing competitors, you need to consider their strengths and weaknesses in comparison to your own business, as well as marketing strategies, product/service offers and points of difference. When developing a business plan, having a well-researched and realistic understanding of your competitors will ensure you set realistic measures, and focus your business activities and resources appropriately. When using the business plan as a basis for attracting funding or investors, you will need to demonstrate how you will combat the threat of competitors, and that your business has analysed market opportunities to achieve the desired business goals. Financing arrangements or financial targets Analysing financial arrangements such as available capital, leasing arrangements, interest payment schedules or other financial implications means that the business plan will be realistic and practical. You will need to demonstrate that the business plan has realistic financial goals or targets based on analysis of the organisation s current and planned financing arrangements. Management arrangements and/or personnel requirements When developing a business plan, it is important to have a clear understanding of roles and responsibilities, and how the organisation is structured. In order to achieve business plans and goals, you must understand how the management of the business is organised, who has the responsibility and accountability to take action. You must also describe how the business will achieve its goals by analysing personnel requirements, such as the need to recruit additional staff or to restructure existing management or personnel arrangements. Marketing approaches Analysing marketing approaches involves looking at how your organisation currently markets its products or services, and whether that approach is effective in achieving the goals of the plan. For example, if the organisation currently uses word of mouth or local advertising and the goal is to expand the business, it would be appropriate to consider other marketing approaches to reach a broader population segment. Product/service research and analysis This type of research and analysis involves looking at the demand for, or market performance of, products/services to ensure that the business plan is realistic in setting goals and objectives. Many organisations commission research into trends, sales patterns, growth markets or customer wants and expectations, in order to make business decisions about the direction of their organisation. 1 st edition version: 1 BSBMGT617 Develop and implement a business plan Page 6 of Innovation and Business Industry Skills Council Ltd

11 Student Workbook Section 1 Develop a Business Plan Learning activity: Review existing strategic, business and operational plans 1. Why must you review existing strategic, business and operational plans when developing a business plan? 2. What information do these plans provide that is important to the development of your business plan? 3. What are some of the potential consequences for managers who fail to review existing strategic, business and operational plans? BSBMGT617 Develop and implement a business plan 1 st edition version: Innovation and Business Industry Skills Council Ltd Page 7 of 144

12 Section 1 Develop a Business Plan Student Workbook Analysing and interpreting the organisational vision, mission and values In the example below, the organisation has documented its vision, mission, value and objectives. It is important to analyse this type of information in order to ensure that the business plan represents not only the short-term financial goals of the organisation, but also the broader goals for long-term growth and how they position themselves in the marketplace. For example, some organisations may place a high value on sustainability and environmental responsibility. When this is documented in the company s vision, mission or values, it must be taken into account when planning how the business will operate, what resources they will utilise and what market segment will be targeted for the organisation s core values. Other organisations may focus on customer service excellence as a point of difference and, as such, would need to document how they will incorporate exceptional customer service strategies as part of the long-term business plan. Scenario: DIY Realty Mission The mission of DIY Realty is to exceed customer expectations by providing them with effective direction relative to the manner which best facilitates the sale of their property. Strategic plan goals The objectives of DIY Realty Pty Ltd are: 1. Profit To generate sufficient profit to finance future growth and to provide the resources needed to achieve the other objectives of the company and its owners. 2. Growth To grow the business at a rate that is both challenging and manageable, leading the market with integrity and reputable advice. 3. Corporate citizenship To provide an ethical service to the local community that maximises earnings from property sales for the vendor. Operational plan goals DIY Realty will succeed via a unique marketing strategy that will result in responsive and quality advice that will generate repeat customers through word of mouth. 1 st edition version: 1 BSBMGT617 Develop and implement a business plan Page 8 of Innovation and Business Industry Skills Council Ltd

13 Student Workbook Section 1 Develop a Business Plan Learning activity: Review vision, mission and values From your analysis of the example above, write a vision for DIY Realty. What do you believe are the elements most important to the company vision? Consult with key stakeholders When developing a business plan, it is essential to consult with key stakeholders to ensure you have all the information you need to complete the plan. Key stakeholders may include: senior management teams business partners or financiers customers shareholders staff technical experts or advisors. Identifying stakeholders A stakeholder map records who your stakeholders are and their level of power, influence and interest. It also helps to determine who you need to focus on to ensure the successful development and implementation of your business plan. BSBMGT617 Develop and implement a business plan 1 st edition version: Innovation and Business Industry Skills Council Ltd Page 9 of 144

14 Section 1 Develop a Business Plan Student Workbook In order to identify stakeholders, you need to think of all the people who are affected by the activities detailed in your plan, who have influence or power over it, or an interest in its successful or unsuccessful development and implementation. Stakeholders may include individuals representing the groups below: management co-workers team members customers shareholders alliance partners suppliers lenders government agencies general public community groups media. Once you have identified the stakeholders, you may find you have a long list of people who are affected by your work. The level of power, interest and influence of these people with regards to your business plan will vary, which is why it is important to complete an assessment to determine the level of consultation required for each stakeholder identified. To complete this assessment, you should map out your stakeholders on a power/interest grid as per below. High Power Low Keep satisfied Monitor (Minimum effort) Manage closely Keep informed Low Interest High A stakeholder s position on the grid indicates the actions you should take with them: High power, interested people: These are the people you must fully engage with, and make the greatest effort to satisfy. High power, less interested people: Put enough work in with these people to keep them satisfied, but not so much that they become bored with your message. Low power, interested people: Keep these people adequately informed and talk to them to ensure that no major issues are arising. These people can often be very helpful with the detail of your project. 1 st edition version: 1 BSBMGT617 Develop and implement a business plan Page 10 of Innovation and Business Industry Skills Council Ltd

15 Student Workbook Section 1 Develop a Business Plan Low power, less interested people: Again, monitor these people but do not bore them with excessive communication. 2 Scenario: DIY Realty DIY Realty has completed the following power/interest grid to identify key stakeholders and determine the consultation effort required. High Power Low Keep satisfied Regulatory bodies Monitor Customers Manage closely Business partners Bank Keep informed Network contacts Low Interest High Learning activity: Consult with key stakeholders Review the stakeholder power/interest grid completed by DIY Realty. In the space below, detail whether you agree or disagree with the stakeholder positioning on the grid, and include your reasoning. Keep satisfied Regulatory bodies 2 Mind Tools, Stakeholder Analysis, 2010, Stakeholder analysis, viewed August 2015, < BSBMGT617 Develop and implement a business plan 1 st edition version: Innovation and Business Industry Skills Council Ltd Page 11 of 144

16 Section 1 Develop a Business Plan Student Workbook Manage closely Business partners and bank Monitor (minimum effort) Customers Keep informed Network contacts The consultation process Once you have identified your key stakeholders and assessed the level of focus you need to apply to each, you can commence the consultation process. Consultation can involve any of the following: meetings or interviews brainstorming sessions focus groups feedback sessions communications newsletters. 1 st edition version: 1 BSBMGT617 Develop and implement a business plan Page 12 of Innovation and Business Industry Skills Council Ltd

17 Student Workbook Section 1 Develop a Business Plan You can use the power/interest grid to assist you in determining the appropriate method of consultation, as those who have been identified as high priority will require a more involved consultation method than those classified as low priority. Priority level Example consultation method Manage closely Keep satisfied Keep informed Monitor (minimum effort) One-to-one meetings Group meetings Interviews Focus groups Brainstorming sessions Feedback sessions Feedback session communications Newsletters communications Newsletters Using the right consultation method for the right group of people is crucial, not only for obtaining the required information but also for gaining support and buy-in from stakeholders that will ensure the successful development and implementation of your plan. Scenario: DIY Realty DIY Realty Pty Ltd has developed the following consultation program to manage their identified key stakeholders: Stakeholder Manage closely Business partners and bank Keep satisfied Regulatory bodies Keep informed Network contacts Consultation method Regular face-to-face meetings to discuss progress. Monitor (Minimum effort) Customers Face-to-face meeting to introduce idea and discuss any concerns or barriers. Written communications to keep informed on progress of idea. Face-to-face meeting to introduce idea and ask for feedback. communications to provide update. Customer newsletter to communicate new business concept.

18 Section 1 Develop a Business Plan Student Workbook Learning activity: Consultation process Answer the questions below. 1. Why is it important that you consult with identified stakeholders? 2. How can the different consultation methods help to ensure the effectiveness of your consultation? 3. What are some potential impacts for managers who do not complete consultation when developing a business plan? Reviewing market requirements We have now discussed the need to consult with key stakeholders and to consider the needs and expectations of personnel within the organisation. Consultation is an ongoing process required when planning, implementing and reviewing business plans. The next stage of developing the business plan is to review the market requirements. 1 st edition version: 1 BSBMGT617 Develop and implement a business plan Page 14 of Innovation and Business Industry Skills Council Ltd

19 Student Workbook Section 1 Develop a Business Plan When developing a business plan, it is important that you complete research and analysis of the market to ensure you fully understand what is required to successfully implement your business plan. This includes: researching and analysing market requirements for the product/service understanding your customer needs researching pricing options. The outcomes of this research will form the basis of an essential component of your business plan your marketing plan. Market requirements Researching market requirements involves understanding the needs and wants of the market in which you operate, or in the case of a start-up business, intend to operate in. Understanding your market involves asking the following three questions: What business are you in? Review your mission statement and be sure you are clear on what it is you are trying to achieve, and how your offering is different or unique to what your competitors are offering. If you cannot articulate what business you are in then it will make it very difficult to market what you are offering. Who are your target markets? You must identify who your target market is. Who is your ideal customer and what are their needs and wants? Knowing this information will help you to develop a product/service that meets a specific market need. It will also allow you to develop a marketing plan that caters directly to this need. What do your customers buy? What benefits do your customers think they receive from your product/service? Accessing and analysing data that demonstrates what your ideal customer buys and what benefits they perceive this product/service provides them with will inform your marketing plan. For example, if research data shows that customers purchasing refrigerators value a good energy rating, because it means the refrigerator is more cost-efficient to run, then it would be critical for a retailer selling fridges to include this information in their marketing plan. 3 3 D.
