Developing Your Business Plan

If creating a formal business plan document is your need, your plan can be completed

  1. by utilizing consulting resources available through KAMDEN Strategy Group,
  2. by your independent work using the aid of our Strategy Direct Business Plan Workbook, or
  3. by using a combination of both.

Phone consultations during the time you are completing each of the segments of your plan are included with the Strategy Direct Business Plan Workbook.

Additional support is also available to supplement your independent efforts. This may involve market research, data collection and analytical work. KAMDEN Strategy Group is available to help you with these additional needs upon your request.

The Strategy Direct Business Plan Workbook

This workbook will guide you through writing a complete business plan for your company in a very user-friendly way. Each section discusses the overall strategy for that particular area (the ‘what’ you plan to do) and the tactical plans (‘how’ you plan to do it).
