Banks and other lending agencies often ask for a business plan to determine whether your business idea has promise. But many entrepreneurs never write out their plans, for a number of reasons, mostly which they are too busy or don't really know how. <p/> For entrepreneurship educators, the business plan is the technology of preparation for students to run a business. It forces the writer to make choices and decisions, and to look at the outcomes of various approaches to running the business. A business plan will be quite different for a person expecting to borrow money from the bank versus a grade school student creating a plan for a money-making project.
