Parts of a Business Plan

Are you trying to understand the parts of a business plan? Every business plan needs to be custom developed to a particular business; though, there are key parts that exist in every business plan. The following parts of a business plan, are consistent from 1 business plan to another:

  • Executive Summary
  • Mission Statement
  • Company Description
  • Growth Strategy
  • Market Analysis
  • Profile of Direct Competitors
  • Competitive Analysis/Strategy
  • Management & Staff
  • Marketing Plan

  • Financial Plan

The following are parts of some business plans:

  • Target Consumer Profile
  • Target Market Analysis
  • Demographic Information
  • Manufacturing Plan
  • Franchise Plan
  • Market Segment Analysis
  • Products & Services

Though, the core parts (sections) of a business plan are fairly consistent, the sub parts of each section tend to vary substantially from one business plan to another.
