The Common Sense Business (CSB) Business Planning Programme has been developed by experts to provide small business owners and managers with the skills essential to running an efficient, profitable and durable business.

With a proven track record, the full CSB programme provides you with all the tools necessary to create a straightforward business plan which can be summarised in just one page. This highly focused approach to clear and concise business planning, means it is more likely that your plan gets put into action, for the betterment of your business.

The programme consists of several courses addressing key areas of business planning. Each course ‘stands alone’, so if you want to know how to complete a SWOT, write your mission statement, or set SMART goals, you can choose an individual course if you’d rather – see below for courses available.

The full programme has a 20% discount, compared to buying the courses separately, and is accompanied by a free ‘Sense Check’ assessment and handy downloadable workbook that includes templates to help you complete your business plan.
