Business has a lot of words that often confuse people. People tend to mix their meaning and are unable to differentiate them. Business plans and business proposals are amongst these misleading terminologies. People often think of them as one and the same thing. Business plans and business proposals are totally different in their use and nature. Both are documents used in business but both have different purposes.
Business plans reflect the long term plan of a business. It reflects the way a business plans to establish itself over a longer period of time. Business proposals on the other hand are not meant for longer term. They are an intention to work out a business venture with another business. The intended audience of both the documents also varies significantly. The business plan is intended for the management as well as the lenders and many others. The business proposal is however a document that is only intended for the other business with whom a business wishes to enter into a joint venture with. Then there is a difference of need. Business plans are needed for establishing a guideline for standing up a business from scrap.
It usually defines the directions the business has to follow step wise in order to achieve that. Business proposals are really not for that purpose. They are short term and only needed to communicate a business’s intentions to work with another business. Business plans often help to raise the required capital needed for your venture. Business proposals don’t do this sort of work. Business proposal can be intended or unintended as well. A large public or private company may give an advertisement about pursuing an adventure and want to get third parties involved through an open bidding process. Unintended proposals are those in which the large organization is reached by the third party to pursue a venture with them in doing the business. In both cases the purpose is quite different from that of a business plan.

The British people have been unemployed because of retrenchment, lay off, downsizing in different plants and offices which has direct and indirect link with the recent global recession.

Video from our FREE Online Business Course www.myownbusiness.org Session 2 – The Business Plan Question “We find that many entrepreneurs find it difficult to write out a business plan. Could you cite why this important step should not be overlooked?” William H. Crookston, Ph.D. Professor of Clinical Entrepreneurship University of Southern California Topics covered in this video: Starting a business, writing a business plan, entrepreneurs, business plan templates Transcript: My experience has been both with students and with individual executives who are trying to start or plan or grow a business and are attempting to do it without a plan. Those particular projects don’t get the help that good planning could give and it’s my belief over many years of experience as well as teaching that it that it’s a necessity to have a written business plan. It helps you figure out where you’re going. It helps get people to support you. It’s an important sales document. It’s a very important financial document and really is your first child. If you can’t write that business plan you can imagine what a mess your second child, the actual business, could be. So if there is anything here that you should tell the world, it is: write a business plan. It doesn’t have to be elaborate. There are many templates out there. We prefer to make sure the entrepreneur does it themselves. You should revise it anytime you think feel it needs revision but without it your just stumbling around in the dark.
