What is the Automatic Business Plan?
The automatic or inertial Business Plan it is a way of creating a business plan using algorithms and software to automatically generate a set of assumptions and forecasts about a company or business. These assumptions and predictions can relate current financial situation, expected income and expenses, long-term goals, marketing strategies and other important aspects of the business plan.
The advantage of an automated Business Plan is that it can be created quickly and without requiring a large amount of data or business knowledge. However, since the assumptions and predictions are generated automatically, they may not be adequate to represent your specific situation or to simulate future scenarios. Furthermore, the inertial must be understood as a forecast based on past data and does not take into account any future changes.
