  1. I think you make a great point. For me, the most important factor is whether the plan will be used after it has been printed. I would much prefer a shorter plan that will be used over a longer plan that sits on the shelf. Also, it’s a bit like Douglas Hubbard’s idea of “reducing uncertainty” in his book “How to Measure Anything;” if it’s the first time for the organization to do this, then the benefits will be tremendous, even though the plan may be short. Once they have had the experience, the company may want to go into more detail for future iterations of the planning process.

  2. I think this would be a great idea! But I also believe you should have a more in depth for your own personal situation. The smaller one would be for investors and business loans. If they ask for more information or a more in depth one then you will have it. I love the idea maybe even a wonderful 5-8 page power point presentation of the plan. More visual and imagination of the plan.
