Tim Berry, business plan expert

I’m Tim Berry, founder of Palo Alto Software, business plan expert, author of books and software . This is my main business page … not to be confused with www.paloalto.com, bplans.com, or liveplan.com for Palo Alto Software; or leanplan.com where I have my book on lean business planning.

My latest book: Lean Business Planning

Lean planning is simple, efficient business planning that starts with a core business plan and includes regular review and revisions. It’s a set of ideas that started about 70 years ago, revolving around PDCA: plan-do-check-adjust.

My latest business plan software: LivePlan

Tools and guidance for business planning as management and steering your business, with plan-v-actual connected to your accounting, complete guided financial projections, and as much or as little text as you want.
