The annual success planning workshop led by the Service Nation Alliance staff is desinged to help you create a solid business plan.

During this two-day workshop, participants will create a practical, usable business plan that can be monitored, evaluated and adjusted. This document must live and breath and take into account the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats that the business may encounter.

A process for creating the plan and then evaluating and adjusting it on a monthly basis will be outlined during this course. Participants will create a budget for the upcoming year based on a break-even budgeting tool and will use the on-line Annual Success Plan to determine sales, profit and major program goals for the year with action plans.

Key Takeaways:
  • Each company will tackle the challenges of their own business model and their requirements for success. 
  • Priorities will be set and costs/capital will be evaluated. 
  • You will walk away with a workable, simple, easy-to-use document that becomes a part of everyday decision making to achieve both short term and long term goals.
  • Annual Success Planning is much more than creating a budget; the heart of the business plan is establishing action items and designating responsibility.
Who should attend this course?
  • Owner/CEO/President
  • General Manager, Sales Manager, Service Manager, Office Manager
  • Bookkeeper, Accountant 
What you need to bring:
  • It is always useful to bring a laptop or tablet with you to a training course.
