Our company is an established printer with a long history. We are quite profitable relative to our peers. It is obvious, however, that the printing industry in general is in decline. We are also noticing that clients are ordering less volume. So far we have been able to hold prices but the early indicators from our sales team is that we will see push back on our prices next quarter. All of our management discussions focus on efficiency and optimizing equipment utilization. It seems like we should be looking at a significant strategic alternatives. For example exiting the publishing business or acquiring competitors.

The founders of a startup business want to discuss the idea in more detail, so they need a business plan. Most business plans are too complex for this early stage of ideation about the business. Is there a short list of topics or headings? What parts of the business should the founders discuss at this early stage?
