Business Planning for Enduring Social Impact
We believe that business planning is an essential tool for guiding organizational actions and acquiring resources for all types of organizations whose primary mission is social impact—nonprofits, government agencies, and for-profit enterprises alike—at any stage of development. With this in mind, we have prepared this guide to offer a practical introduction to the business planning process. And a step-by-step guide for nonprofit organisations seeking to develop a business plan on their own.
Social Enterprise Business Planning Toolkit
Developing a business plan is about understanding your idea and your market inside out as much as it is about writing things down. Planning is an ongoing process about constantly anticipating, reviewing, adapting, and reacting to your environment. All these factors make business planning more important for the survival of your enterprise.
