Starting a business no matter how small requires that, one has all the management tools at hand. Management is what determines whether a business will survive the pressure or not. This said, it is important that, an entrepreneur takes a number of steps to manage the business. To begin with, he must have a long range plan. The plan should capture the vision and the mission of the enterprise, as well as the objectives or steps in which the vision will be realized.

The next very important thing that is required in the management of a business is a realistic budget that captures the inflows and the outflows, i.e. revenue and expenses. The recommended budgeting period is a month, which may vary according to the needs of the enterprise. However, it should not be longer than three months. A budget reduces spendthrift and increases chances of getting some savings.

Job description for employees cannot be ignored neither can it be emphasized enough. It lays down the duties and roles of each employee and this helps the employer to gauge whether the employees are getting paid for what they work for or not. Job descriptions apply to both fulltime and part-time employees. It should be clear and very simple to understand such that every person knows what is expected of them.

Another tool that helps manage a business is a work plan. This should be laid down according to the calendar. It clearly points out what is to be achieved within any specified period of time and what goals are to be realized. A priority list completes the work plan in that, it helps to clearly lay out what is to be achieved every day. This pushes the staff to action to achieve the bigger goals.
