Ownership and Management Plan. This section describes the legal structure, ownership, and (if applicable) the management, and staffing requirements of your business.
The resulting document can serve as the blueprint for your business and be supplied to financial institutions or investors if debt or equity financing is needed to get your business off the ground.
Be specific. Being specific is just as important as being concise. The details will help you drill down into how you will actually deliver your plan.
Operating Plan. The operating plan outlines the physical requirements of your business, such as office, warehouse, or retail space, equipment, inventory and supply needs, labor, etc. For a one-person, home-based consulting business the operating plan will be short and simple, but for a business such as a restaurant or manufacturer that requires custom facilities, supply chains, specialized equipment, and multiple employees, the operating plan needs to be much more detailed.
