"A business plan is a formal statement of a set of business goals, the reasons they are believed attainable, and the plan for reaching those goals. It may also contain background information about the organization or team attempting to reach those goals..."
For those who don't have any idea about business plans I will try to explain it a little bit simpler. Thus look... you have an idea and you want to make a new business to profit from selling your idea, service, product etc. But selling a new product is not as easy as standing on the street and selling it to by-passers. Most of the time you have to rent a local, buy machines to produce your product, buy a car and set up many other things. And another thing is that even though you have a really fantastic product it doesn't mean at all that you are going to be rich easy and quickly. In real life the things don't go as easy as in your mind. And that's why we have a business plan when we put on paper all possible and necessary costs ad expenses to set up and run the business in the beginning. Within business plan there is also a section called projected income from running the business and selling the product. And later comparing the projection of income with all the costs necessary to set up the business we can see whether it is really worth establishing business to sell your product. And quite often it happens that although a person has a fantastic idea or product but the possible profit is not going to be big enough or there is not going to be possible to achieve any profit at all and that's why the banks ask people - who ask for a credit to set up a business - to present the business plan and they assess the whole concept and idea. By the way some of the business plans are really big books because they describe in details every aspect of the new business including strategies, market analysis, projections into the far future and this requires a lot of work, studies, research and analysis.
I hope that you have grasped the idea behind the business plan... ?!
