Icube Side Session A business plan stands as a content-heavy document that same would say is ‘living’. The real value of creating a business plan is not in having the finished product in hand; rather, the value lies in the process of researching and thinking about your business in a systematic way. The act of planning helps you to think things through thoroughly, research facts and trends, and take a critical look at your own ideas and concepts. Developing a business plan will take time, but it will also minimize costly – and perhaps disastrous -mistakes over the long-term.
