Using the Business Plan template (titled as “Main Template” and other additional templates) provided by your nominated trainer and assessor (also available in e-learning), develop a strategic business plan for a small business or enterprise of your choice or use the organisational context of Academies Australasia.

To demonstrate competency you will need to consider in your analysis the capabilities and resources of the new enterprise, vision, mission, trends and developments in the marketplace, comparative market information, and legal and ethical restraints on the proposed business activity. Finally, the business plan should provide a forecast for the long-range direction of the business and its strategic success.

You will be working to develop a business plan for your chosen business to open a new branch at Hobart. The paper and the presentation should include a well-laid process to actualize the business idea, strategic financial feasibility, marketing feasibility, and operational feasibility. In order to open a new branch to offer services at Hobart, the company needs to have the appropriate legal clearance from the relevant authority. You will also need to conduct an extensive research to identify the legal requirements and summarize your findings.
