Program Title Your Business Planned
Course Type Seminar

Your Business Planned is a structured online self-study program that helps people without formal business backgrounds develop basic yet solid business plans. The course guides entrepreneurs through the business planning process to build not just a document, but a business mission, strategy, goals, tactics, and financials.

This is real-world learning in the context of your own business or business idea. When you complete all the modules you’ll have your very own business plan that you can implement immediately. You’ll also learn about key business concepts through special lessons called Learning Pauses. Your Business Planned features a business plan template that is filled in by the learner after each lesson, backup worksheets, presentation slides, a discussion forum, and weekly recorded Q&A sessions.

At the end of this course you will have:

  1. A finished basic business plan developed by the learner
  2. Basic understanding of business concepts including marketing principles, sales projections, income statement, goal setting, mission statement, and SWOT analysis
  3. Financial worksheets that can be used for future record keeping

Your Business Planned was developed for the special needs of micro-enterprises and small businesses in developing countries and emerging economies. This is for you if you:

  1. Operate a small business or micro-enterprise, or are thinking of starting one
  2. Know you need a plan for your business but are overwhelmed by the prospect of writing one
  3. Have never seen or written a business plan and don’t know how to go about it
  4. Researched business plans on the internet and got intimidated because you couldn’t understand them
  5. Have little/no experience or formal education in business skills or management
  6. Are looking for a basic, simple business plan
  7. Have limited resources, such as funds, staff, and training
  8. Operate in a local business environment that offers little or no small business assistance
  9. Need help understanding business terms and principles

Expected level of effort:

Most of the work involved is “homework”. Video presentation is approximately 1.5 hours total. Filling in the business plan will take 10-25 hours, depending on the business. To help you along the way we have organised a weekly Q&A with the course instructor.

You can submit your questions in our specially created discussion forum inside the Agribusiness Academy platform anytime during the week. Recorded answers will be available in a video file posted each week.
