Plan To Profit

Plan to Profit

Small businesses in the construction industry have the second highest failure rate of all industries.  According to the Small Business Development Center, 9 out of 10 business failures in the U.S. are caused by a lack of planning and general business management skills.

A survey of builder and remodeler members of the National Association of Home Builders revealed that fewer than 12 percent had a written business plan, fever than 15 percent had written operating budgets, less than 18 percent had written mission statements, and almost 70 percent had no formal planning procedures.

Do you have a written business plan for your business?

Your business plan is the most important management tool you have. It defines your strategy, tactics, and specific activities for execution, including dates and deadlines, budgets and cash flow. It will guide you regarding the types of projects to pursue, how you market your company, the people to hire and the funding needed to succeed. Planning establishes your short-term, intermediate-term, and long-term goals that everyone on your team can identify and support.

Your business plan will help you focus strategy, manage milestones, manage metrics, assign and track responsibilities and performance, and manage money using projections for sales, costs, expenses, and cash.
