I require a business plan in a course I teach; for most of the students the assignment is a course project that they do not intend to pursue in real life.
The book has a table of contents and is broken down into specific chapters. I do not feel it is necessary for sub topics because the chapters are brief and to the point.
This textbook and its accompanying spreadsheet templates were designed with and for students wanting a practical and easy-to-follow guide for developing a business plan.
echnically, a business plan is a written statement of business goals, the reasons why they are attainable, and the plan for reaching those goals.
Practically, if you are wanting to start your own business, it is very important to go through the business plan process.
