    There are many different aspects involved in business planning. Some of the aspects include doing your research, and not just doing it but getting your hands on every available resource out there that will help your business. Another thing is be sure not to make the focus of your business what you want. Your main goal should be to provide the best for your customer. That means taking in to account the likes and dislikes if them. Create a business plan, and update it as many times as you feel necessary. it will help you keep your ideas and goals in check. I hope this helps for now.

    I think it's definitely true that you have to do a lot of research before you start a business. From my own experience, it takes most of the time to prepare the business, and the setup goes smooth once you've found your place in the business world. The www offers great tools for doing research, for example statistics on e-commerce and marketing methods.

    There are way too many stuffs involved in business planning that it would be difficult to fit them all in here. But as a basic overview, you need to focus on the following: product/services, target customer or market, and promotional methods used so you can reach out to your target customers. It is also important to note your budget and risk management strategies when business planning. The longer and more extensive the business plan is, the better so you can have things in place depending on the actual turn out once you begin to roll out your business.

    Management of your resources is the most important part while planning a business. Management of resources efficiently can be the key of success for any business. The human element can be mistake prone in managing and planning especially when your resources are located across the globe. The solution to it can be something automated, probably an  effective resource management software; which can take care of all your planning and management requirements. Manual scheduling of resources can be tedious and troublesome.
