Business plans alive

Business plans are only useful if they are "alive", which means they must immediately give feedback and help with a constant re-planning, appraisal, revision, search for working business and price models, etc. Ideally, they should not contain static textual descriptions (which can go in general documents), but rather the budget figures for the balance sheet, P&L and cash developments resulting from planning customers, marketing, network effects, prices, sales, costs, profits, taxes, investments, capital measures and liquidity. Making a business plan should not be considered a burden, but a fun and valuable tool for supporting the implementation of any business idea or innovation.

For this, the Visual Business Planner breaks completely new ground: freely scalable, completely interactive, graphically, step-by-step, clear, didactically comprehensible, completely decentralized, parameters instead of columns of numbers, team-oriented and usable in lectures or further training.

The aim is that the Visual Business Planner can make a significant contribution to the science and innovation system. To this end, it will be further developed on the basis of an agile approach and with knowledge and requirements from a network of practice and academics. The German Stifterverband shared this vision in its program Wirkung hoch 100 and had included the Visual Business Planner project into its 100ths anniversary support initiative.
