    The three "tests" associated with a business plan are ________.

    • A.

      Reality, competitive, and value

    • B.

      Competitive, profitability, and value

    • C.

      Value, reality, and profitability

    • D.

      Reality, value and litmus

    Correct Answer
    A. Reality, competitive, and value
    Explanation
    The three "tests" associated with a business plan are reality, competitive, and value. These tests are important for evaluating the feasibility and potential success of a business plan. The reality test assesses whether the plan is grounded in practicality and achievable goals. The competitive test examines the plan's ability to compete in the market and stand out from competitors. The value test determines whether the plan offers unique value to customers and meets their needs effectively. By passing these three tests, a business plan is more likely to be viable and successful.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    The primary purpose of building a business plan is to raise capital.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The primary purpose of building a business plan is not solely to raise capital. While raising capital is an important aspect of a business plan, its primary purpose is to outline the overall strategy and direction of the business. A business plan helps in defining goals, identifying target customers, analyzing competition, and creating a roadmap for success. It also serves as a tool for attracting investors, partners, and lenders, but its purpose extends beyond just raising capital.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Ideally, a business plan should be about ________ pages in length.

    • A.

      10

    • B.

      20-40

    • C.

      40-75

    • D.

      75-100

    Correct Answer
    A. 10
    Explanation
    A business plan should ideally be about 10 pages in length. This is because a concise and focused plan is more likely to be read and understood by potential investors or stakeholders. A shorter plan also forces the entrepreneur to prioritize and include only the most important and relevant information. Additionally, a shorter plan is easier to update and modify as the business evolves.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    The most effective business plans follow the "cookie cutter approach," following the standard format most preferred by lenders and investors.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The explanation for the answer "False" is that the most effective business plans do not necessarily follow a cookie cutter approach. While it is important to have a clear and organized format that lenders and investors can easily understand, a successful business plan should also be tailored to the specific needs and goals of the business. A one-size-fits-all approach may not effectively showcase the unique aspects and potential of a business, making it less appealing to lenders and investors. Therefore, it is important to customize the business plan to stand out and demonstrate the business's value proposition.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    The executive summary serves as the thesis statement for the entire business plan.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The executive summary does not serve as the thesis statement for the entire business plan. While the executive summary provides a brief overview of the business plan, it is not the same as a thesis statement. A thesis statement typically appears in academic writing and presents the main argument or point of the paper. In a business plan, the executive summary summarizes the key points and goals of the plan, but it does not function as a thesis statement.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    In a business plan, both company goals and objectives should relate to the company's mission.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    In a business plan, it is important for the company goals and objectives to align with the company's mission. The mission statement defines the purpose and values of the company, and the goals and objectives should be designed to support and fulfill this mission. By ensuring that the goals and objectives are in line with the mission, the company can maintain focus and direction, and work towards achieving its overall purpose. Therefore, the statement "both company goals and objectives should relate to the company's mission" is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Which of the following is not one of the three components of intellectual capital?

    • A.

      Human

    • B.

      Structural

    • C.

      Competitor

    • D.

      Customer

    Correct Answer
    C. Competitor
    Explanation
    The three components of intellectual capital are typically considered to be human capital, structural capital, and customer capital. These components refer to the knowledge, skills, and abilities of the workforce, the organizational structures and processes that support knowledge creation and sharing, and the relationships and loyalty of customers, respectively. Competitor capital, on the other hand, is not commonly recognized as a component of intellectual capital. While understanding and monitoring competitors is important for strategic decision-making, it is not considered a direct component of intellectual capital.

      Core competencies

    • B.

      Opportunities

    • C.

      Key success factors

      Mission statements

    Correct Answer

    Core competencies refer to a unique set of capabilities that a company develops in key operational areas, such as service and innovation. These competencies give the company a competitive advantage and allow it to potentially surpass its competitors. By focusing on its core competencies, a company can differentiate itself in the market and provide value to its customers. These competencies are not easily imitated by competitors, making them a valuable asset for the company's success.

    The key to entrepreneurial success over time is to build a ________ competitive advantage.

    • A.

      Defensible

    • B.

      Sustainable

    • C.

      Coherent

    • D.

      Random

    Correct Answer
    B. Sustainable
    Explanation
    To achieve entrepreneurial success over time, it is crucial to establish a sustainable competitive advantage. This means creating a unique position in the market that is difficult for competitors to replicate or surpass. A sustainable advantage allows a business to maintain its market share and profitability in the long run, as it is built on durable and valuable resources, capabilities, or strategies. This ensures that the business can withstand challenges, changes in the market, and the emergence of new competitors, ultimately leading to continued success.

  • 11. 

    Large companies have a natural advantage over small firms when it comes to preparing a strategic plan.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Large companies do not necessarily have a natural advantage over small firms when it comes to preparing a strategic plan. While large companies may have more resources and access to greater amounts of data, small firms can often be more agile and flexible in their decision-making processes. Small firms may also have a closer connection to their customers and a better understanding of their specific needs. Ultimately, the advantage in strategic planning depends on the specific circumstances and capabilities of each company, regardless of its size.

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    The mission statement of a small company serves multiple purposes. It not only establishes the company's purpose in writing but also provides a sense of direction to the business and its employees. Additionally, it defines what the company is, why it exists, and its reason for being. Therefore, all of the given options accurately describe the role and importance of a mission statement for a small company.

      Internal and/or external factors

    • D.

      Factors not belonging

    Correct Answer

Strengths are the positive aspects that give the organization a competitive advantage, while weaknesses are the areas that need improvement or pose challenges. These factors are within the control of the organization and can be influenced and managed by its leaders and employees.

Therefore, the correct answer is "direct".

    Correct Answer

This implies that among the options given, Competitor 1 has the worst location compared to the others, including the person's own company and Competitor 2.

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    The ideal strategic planning process for a small company should start with setting objectives.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The ideal strategic planning process for a small company should not necessarily start with setting objectives. While setting objectives is an important step in strategic planning, it is not always the first step. The process may begin with conducting a SWOT analysis or assessing the company's current situation before setting objectives. Therefore, the statement is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 18. 

     "Big box retailers" present an opportunity for many small business owners.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that "big box retailers" present an opportunity for small business owners, but the correct answer is false. This means that big box retailers do not provide an opportunity for small business owners. The explanation for this could be that big box retailers often have significant market dominance, economies of scale, and lower prices, which can make it difficult for small businesses to compete and thrive in the same market. Additionally, big box retailers may have more resources and bargaining power, making it challenging for small businesses to negotiate favorable terms or secure shelf space in these retail environments.

    Rate this question:

  • 19. 

    Which of the following is not a characteristic of a well-written objective?

      Realistic, yet challenging

    • B.

      Measurable

    • C.

      General

    • D.

      Timely

    Correct Answer
    C. General
    Explanation
    A well-written objective should be specific and focused, rather than general. It should clearly define what needs to be accomplished and provide clear guidelines for success. A general objective lacks clarity and does not provide a clear direction for achieving the desired outcome.

    Rate this question:

  • 20. 

    ________ are the broad, long-range attributes the small business seeks to accomplish; ________ are the more specific targets for performance.

    • A.

      Goals; objectives

    • B.

      Goals; strategies

    • C.

      Objectives; goals

    • D.

      Strategies; goals

    Correct Answer
    A. Goals; objectives
    Explanation
    In this context, goals refer to the broad, long-range attributes that a small business aims to achieve. These goals provide a general direction and overall purpose for the business. On the other hand, objectives are more specific targets for performance that are set to support and fulfill the goals. Objectives are measurable, time-bound, and serve as milestones or steps towards achieving the broader goals. Therefore, goals and objectives work together, with goals providing the overarching vision and objectives defining the specific actions and outcomes needed to reach that vision.

    • C.

      Your company's most vulnerable point against these two competitors is in the area of on-time delivery.

    • D.

      The most important of the key success factors is location.

    Correct Answer
    C. Your company's most vulnerable point against these two competitors is in the area of on-time delivery.
    Explanation
    This answer is correct because it identifies the specific weakness of the company in comparison to the two competitors. It states that the company is most vulnerable in the area of on-time delivery, suggesting that the competitors are stronger in this aspect. This weakness can have a significant impact on the company's performance and customer satisfaction, making it an important factor to address in order to compete effectively.

    • B.

      Direct

    • C.

      Parallel

    • D.

They may have some overlap in terms of products or services, but their target customers seldom coincide with yours. This means that they are not directly competing for the same customers in the same areas, making them an indirect competitor.
