What are the most important things for your organisation to know?

I had the opportunity to ask some of the staff at The Sport bible, the official website of the National Rugby League, about the importance of having a good business plan.

Here are their top tips for running your business, and what they recommend to other organisations looking to build a successful Rugby League team.


The business plan should be written with a view to profit.

In the rugby world, this means putting your vision and business plan in front of a board of directors.

It’s not about how many fans you’ll attract and how many people you’ll be able to attract, but how many dollars you’ll make and how much money you can make.

In this case, the key is to put a business plan into action, not a blank check.

For me, it’s about putting a vision, a business strategy, and a business process into place.


It is important to identify what your audience is.

This is the most difficult part.

If you’re not sure who your target audience is, ask them to do a quick Google search.

They may be surprised to find out what your ideal audience is or what they want to hear.

It will help you to understand what kind of team you want to build and where you can focus your efforts.

It might also help you plan for the future and see where you need to improve.

For example, you might want to think about what kind (or number) of fans are watching a particular game and where they’re coming from, or what kind and amount of sponsorships you want, or where your players are going to play.

The more you know about your audience, the more likely you are to know what you can do to attract the right people.


Think of your business as a series of business units.

Each of your businesses has its own needs and priorities.

It could be a business department or a training and development department.

Each will have its own budget, time and resources, and different needs and interests.

In a way, these are your business units, and they should be as similar as possible, but with different responsibilities.

Think about how each business is integrated into your overall organisation.

Each business unit can be designed to suit its specific business objectives and needs.


Keep a business diary.

It can be a good way of tracking your business’s progress.

For every business unit you have, record how many business days have passed, what has happened with your business and how you are doing with it.

This gives you a record of what’s happened in the last few weeks.

For each business unit, record what your team has achieved.


Keep an eye on your profits.

As you plan the next steps, it is important that you pay attention to your profit and loss.

If your business is making money, keep an eye out to see how it compares with what it was last week, and look at the profitability of the business for the year ahead.

This will help to identify areas that you can improve and which are areas that need to be improved in the next 12 months.


Pay attention to where you are spending your money.

Some organisations use a combination of tax and other expenses to fund their business, so keep an ear out for what they spend on, and where it goes.

This way, you can keep an updated list of how you spend your money and how the money is being spent.


Keep your eyes on the prize.

Don’t get bogged down in what is happening in your club or league.

Be patient.

It may take some time to build your business but it’s a process.

Be the first to hear about your latest project, or perhaps the latest news about a new hire.

Keep up to date on all the latest headlines and what is being done to support the game, and your team.


Keep in touch.

This might not be the most exciting part of running your company, but it will pay off big time.

You need to keep in touch with your customers and with each other to get to know them and their needs and wants.

You can also find out who is involved in the business and why, what projects they are working on and how they are progressing.

You could also ask them for feedback on your team, and how well they are doing.


Stay up to speed.

For any company, the first three points are important.

But as the business matures and you get more people, you will need to put in more time and effort.

There are several reasons for this.

It takes time to establish a solid business plan and to hire people.

You might not get as many people as you would like, or there are people who will be more experienced and capable.

You may have to put more effort into marketing your business or getting your message out.

It all adds up over time.

So it’s important that your business plan remains relevant and up to the task, so that
