Lean business planning is streamlined and optimized, starting with a lean business plan that’s efficient and practical. It’s not just a plan, it’s a process. Its benefits include managing, optimizing, and steering a business.
- It’s not about a traditional business plan document. The lean business plan includes strategy, key tactics, milestones, tasks, responsibilities, performance metrics, tracking, and regular review and revision. It’s something that benefits every business.
- It’s easy to do because it doesn’t bother with extras. Don’t do the executive summary. Don’t describe the market. Don’t describe the team. Just plan it. Know it, yes; but analyze it or prove it, no.
- It’s not voided by change — it exists to manage change better.
- It’s just big enough to run the business.
