Developing a plan for a new business (or even for an exiting one) can be a messy process.  There are many things to consider and often the process of developing the plan involves juggling lots of ideas and pieces of the plan.  This template is intended to help an entrepreneur organize all of the many ideas. One way to do it is to write each question on a sheet of paper and then spread the sheets out on the kitchen table.  Then as ideas come up or answers are found, write them on the appropriate sheet.  After while, as the sheets fill up, you will start seeing the best path for the organization.
