How to Navigate

  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.
