9781628652130: Lean Business Planning: Get What You Want From Your Business

Lean business planning simple but powerful way to get what you want from your business. Get focused, grow faster, and adjust to change. A lean business plan is an easy and practical way to align strategy, tactics, milestones, assumptions, and essential cash flow without the fuss of a full business plan. It's not a business plan document. It's just bullet points and lists and tables. Keep it short and review and revise monthly in just an hour or so. It's planning that matters, the process - not the plan.

The book includes easy ways to summarize strategy and tactics to remind you and visualize strategic alignments. It explains how to set review schedules, milestones, and performance tracking and measurement. It includes step-by-step explanations, with lots of examples, of how to develop a sales forecast and expense budget, and how to plan real cash flow. It also covers how to review and revise the plan every month, what to look for, how to pull in your team, how to decide when to stick to a plan and when to change it. 

It's for all business owners, entrepreneurs, and startups. It applies the power of lean startups and lean manufacturing to simple daily management including task responsibilities, measurement, expectations, and getting the right things done. It's not about a business plan document. No need to include long texts, summaries, or descriptions. Just focus on what should be done, by whom, when, and why, and how much money it takes. 

Its author is the world's leading expert on business planning, not just a consultant or academic, but an entrepreneur who bootstrapped his own company to multi-million sales, was a co-founder of another company that went public, and advises multiple startups and small businesses. And he's a Stanford MBA and angel investor. 

In a Foreword written by Guy Kawasaki, he says: "I'm recommending this book because what Tim calls a lean business plan is pretty much what I call the MATT (for milestones, assumptions, tests, and tasks) in The Art of the Start.

"Tim's lean plan involves bullet points, lists, and tables that help you run your business--as opposed to pitch investors. This includes the metrics you can track, milestones, assumptions, regular review, and frequent revisions.

"Use this book to get what you want from your business. Use it to focus, set priorities, follow up on what needs doing, manage people and resources, and get the right things done.

Whether you're looking to start a new business or just run an existing business better, this book will help you set a strategic focus and tactics to match. If you do end up dealing with investors who want a business plan, this book even explains how you can stick with a lean plan and add what investors want."

From the Author:

What do you want from your business? Wealth? Fame? Making a better living? Maybe you want more independence. Maybe you want to be able to take time off to coach the kids' soccer. With this book

I'm going to help you get what you want. I will show you how focus, priorities, setting expectations and tracking results can help you get what you want from your business. I promise.

Don't sweat the big business plan. Skip the descriptions and explanations. Just do a lean plan. It will help you get where you are going without bogging you down. It's fast, easy, and practical.

Who doesn't like planning a vacation? Decide where you're going to go, look at the activities, attractions, restaurants, hotels, and the route. When I was a kid, we'd get together before our big backpacking trips and plan routes, food, what to pack. As an adult, I'd join my wife planning our family vacations. Planning is part of the fun.

And planning your own business? That too. Set your strategy, and the tactics to execute it. Figure out pricing, marketing, product. It's dreaming and telling stories, and then adding what it takes to make them come true. It's making things happen. It's going from a vague, daunting, hard- to-manage uncertainty to specific educated guesses, linked together, so you can deal with them. Get things done.

From the Back Cover:

"In order to thrive today your business must be nimble. Throw out traditional business planning and embrace Lean Business Planning and set your business free to dominate."  - John Jantsch, author of Duct Tape Marketing and The Referral Engine---"Every business owner should do a lean business plan, and this book shows you how easy it is to do it... and what it will mean to your success."  - Barbara Weltman, author, radio show host, president of Big Ideas for Small Business, Inc. ---"Another great book from Tim Berry. Lean business planning is perfect for today's ever-changing small businesses that still need a way to stay on track as they move their chess pieces around the board." The Franchise King®, Joel Libava, world's foremost expert on franchise business. ---"Really, really good. I like the fact that you've given a much more tangible business planning tool that gives people a good idea about how to run an actual business." - Vikas Shah, founder of Swisscot Group and Thoughtstrategy.com, President TiE UK North, Visiting Professor with MIT Sloan School of Business---"Lean Business Planning is more than a great business book. Tim Berry has created a powerful tool for business owners who are ready to clear away distractions and focus on achieving their goals. Tim's lean planning approach is both accessible and profoundly useful. This book is required reading for every entrepreneur or independent professional who is serious about growing a successful business." - Stephen Lahey, Sales and Marketing Consultant (StephenLahey.com)---"What stops a lot of small businesses before they even start is the idea of creating a business plan. Although important, it feels like drudge work to them or a ball and chain they'll be tied to forever. They just want to take that idea they're excited about and run with it. That's why the Lean Business Plan is so perfect. It provides enough structure to enable a path forward without the perceived constraints of a "formal" plan. Its best feature is the continuous process cycle which is a key strategy small business owners can use to improve the chances for business success. The Lean Business Plan allows them to be nimble and quick so they can "work the business," not the plan. This straight forward, step-by-step guide will be helpful for any small business owner to keep handy as they move through their business life cycle." - Denise O'Berry, author of Small Business Cash Flow: Strategies for Making Your Business a Financial Success
