Remember the proverbial expression 'not seeing the wood for the trees'? You need to see the 'wood' first, then delve in and start examining the individual 'trees', meaning the individual items which you will be breaking down later. So a great point is to make sure that you have that overarching vision - and if you cannot find one, then maybe it is an indication that you are obsessing on a few technical aspects that do not necessarily make up a whole business as you had imagined it.
That is a great thing to make sure you have in your business plan, that your business will be built around those real customer wants. Do not make callous assumptions, or statements like "I know what people want", "People are going to love this", and so on.
Drawing functional Plan: After positive result form the feasibility study, functional plans are drawn up. Some scholars and writers prefer to include feasibility study with functional plan but the two have been taken separately. Whereas only after the feasibility study can one go into the derails of drawing up functional plans which would determine the strategies for all the operational areas : marketing, Finance and production.
Obtain Feedback On Your Plan : When writing a business plan you sometimes end up locking yourself away. You might have unique ideas which lead you to seek some isolation and secrecy, or if you are going to be a sole trader you may only have one person to consult namely yourself. But it is fantastic to try and get broader input on your business plan - whether from a professional, or simply from friends and family whom you trust.
