The energy and telecommunications
markets combined, in the United States, is nearly a $1 trillion retail market. Frequently, clients wish to examine the options of entering new markets and forging new business models. However, dealing with new services presents uncertainties and risks that must be clearly understood. The development of a business plan is undertaken with the purpose of making clients the most knowledgeable decision-makers possible about the level of investment, the risks, ranges of possible outcomes, and sensitivities of those outcomes. The effort invested in the business plan should be rigorous as the resulting decision could launch a course of action that may be ill fated from the start.
