The SCORE Minneapolis Business Planning Center (BPC) uses Palo Alto Software's "Business Plan Pro" on the computers set aside for clients use to prepare a business plan.   A business plan involves entering text, financial data and statistics as part of the prose and financial projections.   If a client is not familiar with the contents of a typical business plan they can waste a lot of time before they have an acceptable, to them, plan.   This series of slides guides the client through the steps and directs them to sources to gather information.
