  4. 4. Our services Business planning • At ptm, business planning projects go way beyond the development of a document. Typical projects encompass a broad range of activity, from a critical and constructive review of existing plans to the deconstruction and rebuilding of a business model to meet changing market environments. • And although most clients understand the importance of business planning, many early stage businesses are short on experienced resources to work on the business rather than in the business. • A ptm business planning project delivers sound advice, implementable strategies and, of course, a plan that will serve not only the business but will stand up to the rigorous interrogation of professional investors. pearsall|tatham|mcgrath HOME
