Taking the time to honestly assess your results against the benchmarks that you established can help you better understand where you stand and where you are going.
A bonus associated with keeping your business plan current: the majority of content in your business plan can, with small amounts of editing, also fill out large portions of an RFP response that is the tool to win yourself MORE and NEW business [or, grant proposal for more and new .
