Creating a business plan: Development and production toolbox

The aim of this development and production toolbox is to provide you with a worksheet and samples to help you adequately write and present your product development outline.

  • Development outline: Use this worksheet to help assemble the information you will need for your development outline.


  • Development status: ABC software produced a detailed schedule showing what steps had to be taken to bring its accounting program to market.
