This is a 25-slide PowerPoint. This document introduces a framework for entrepreneurs to use when building and navigating their business from a nascent, startup state to an enterprise with a global footprint.

Familiarity with the Five Stages of Business Growth allows the business owner and business consultant to develop invaluable insights, including: Knowing what to focus on at what stage Appropriate management style at each stage Anticipation of key challenges at various points Critical success factors through the company's progression Involvement of owner at various stages Evaluation of impact from governmental regulations and policies This presentation also includes case examples.
This is a 32-slide PowerPoint presentation with an accompanying Excel business case model. The Business Case is an instrumental tool in both justifying a project (requiring a capital budgeting decision), as well as measuring the project's success. The Business Case model typically takes the form of an Excel spreadsheet and quantifies the financial components of the project, projecting key metrics for making any important business decision: e.g. Net Present Value (NPV), Return on Investment (ROI), Payback Period, Cost of Investment. If a project has been justified by the Business Case (both financially and non-financially) and receives the go-ahead from executives, the Business Case model is then continuously maintained and adjusted to track the project's progress against the initial financial projections and assumptions. This model then becomes a working document used during the project management process. This toolkit will detail the process of creating a robust Business Case. It also includes a working sample Business Case model (in Microsoft Excel).
