Business plan

- a document explaining what a particular organisation is, what it is in existance to do, how it operates, who benefits, what it costs to run, how its efforts are assessed and maintained etc. The preparation of a business plan is on the whole, sensible, but the true significance to the conservation world is that The Heritage Lottery Fund are fairly certain to ask for one as part of any application for grant.
