The full title of this book by Shirley Mansfield is
The P-Plan for Business: How to achieve faster, better business growth
In my review posted on Amazon.co.uk, I gave the book a rating of Three Stars. This means it is Worthwhile.
Here is my book review.
How many business words beginning with P can you name?
I immediately found a warning sign with “My P-Plan for Business is a taster of how I can help you”.
The book goes through 30 words beginning with the letter P. Things like planning, planet, proposition etc.
It’s quirky just how many business words begin with P. Many years ago, I was watching people come out with their own 4 Ps of Marketing, as a variation on the traditional Price, Products, Place and Promotion and perhaps adding a couple more. So as a joke, I did a blog about the 27 Ps of Marketing.
This book feels a bit like that. Ideas forced to fit into a structure.
It’s hard to disagree with what’s written here but it’s hard to get excited about it either.
I’m giving the book three stars, which for me means worthwhile.
I was a consultant, small business coach and advisor based in Birmingham, with over 35 years business experience, including more than 20 years as self employed.
My main business qualifications are:
– Chartered Accountant
– Certified Guerilla Marketing Coach
My main interests are in helping business owners who are stuck get unstuck by thinking more clearly about their issues and possible solutions.
I no longer provide professional business coaching but I will be sharing more ideas on my blog and will continue my popular business book reviews.
