Assess your competition. Understanding your competition is an essential component to understanding any business environment. Whatever the business you are looking to establish, you will always have competition in varying degrees. Perhaps you want to open a restaurant in an area that is already saturated with eateries; you then need to think about what is the unique selling point of your restaurant. Or maybe you have found a niche in the market, why is that? In order to make your business a success you should look to your competitors to see how they are managing their business or areas where they could improve. You also need to assess whether you can compete effectively with the existing businesses and how you plan to do so.
Executive summary- The executive summary is the backbone of the business plan and it should include a brief background of the business concept, company's objective's or your plan, ownership structure, management team, service offering, target market(s), competitive advantages, marketing strategy and high-level financial details like expected profit, required funding etc. It helps the bank or finance executives to get an idea of your business.
Management by objectives (MBO) is a process of agreeing upon objectives (as can be detailed within business plans) within an organization so that management and employees agree to the objectives and understand what they are in the organization.
The market potential for your service or product-You need to convince your customers and employees for your products and services you are offering and hence you have to find out the market which needs that product or service.
