  The “lean” approach to business planning is a flexible method for today’s rapidly evolving markets. You have a small window of opportunity to successfully launch an idea. Lean business planning gets you there. Most importantly, it answers the question “Is this idea worthy of being a business? Or it is just a hobby?”                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  .helpButton { display: none; } body.bg { opacity: 0; -moz-animation: cssAnimation 0s ease-in 2s forwards; -webkit-animation: cssAnimation 0s ease-in 2s forwards; -o-animation: cssAnimation 0s ease-in 2s forwards; animation: cssAnimation 0s ease-in 2s forwards; -webkit-animation-fill-mode: forwards; animation-fill-mode: forwards; } @keyframes cssAnimation { to { opacity: 1; } } @-webkit-keyframes cssAnimation { to { opacity: 1; } } @import url(https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Fjalla+One|Raleway); @import url(https://socialenterpriseinstitute.ca/styles/learnUponMin.css); Read More

Explore_-_set_1._intro_to_business_planning_%28andy%29

  The purpose of this module is to learn about business planning, what it actually is, but more importantly to get a sense of what level of planning you need for your enterprise. Business planning is not a one-size fits all process, or it shouldn’t be at least, and the trick is to try to identify what level of planning will be appropriate for you and your enterprise. You don't need a super-sized business plan to launch many enterprises - so let's not do more work than we we have to; let's move as quickly as possible from idea to testing in the market. Please note: If you are completing any courses with a Coach or a Social Enterprise Developer for the Incubator, please email any documents you complete directly to your Coach or Developer - the downloaded documents can not be saved in the online course or your SEI account. Also, Coaches and Developers do not see your answers to the pre- and post-tests; these are for your information only. .helpButton { display: none; } body.bg { opacity: 0; -moz-animation: cssAnimation 0s ease-in 2s forwards; -webkit-animation: cssAnimation 0s ease-in 2s forwards; -o-animation: cssAnimation 0s ease-in 2s forwards; animation: cssAnimation 0s ease-in 2s forwards; -webkit-animation-fill-mode: forwards; animation-fill-mode: forwards; } @keyframes cssAnimation { to { opacity: 1; } } @-webkit-keyframes cssAnimation { to { opacity: 1; } } @import url(https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Fjalla+One|Raleway); @import url(https://socialenterpriseinstitute.ca/styles/learnUponMin.css); Read More
