Monthly Plan

Monthly plans are an important aspect of planning growth and of management control.

Monthly Plan Format

A 2-3 page Monthly Plan for an emerging revenue stream can include some or all of the following bullet style sections.  Please adapt this list to match your situation.  This format can be used by the CEO officers and employees.  If your new venture is a part of an established entity you may also have “corporate” requirements to consider:

  • “Department” plans when appropriate.  The following list can be edited to fit your situation:
    • Mission
