Default Operational Plan

Any tips on putting one together? I did some research here http://www.business-plans-guide.com/...onal-plan.html but found it kind of limited. I didn't find any decent books on the subject either.

I'm at the point where I think I need to put one together. I have a strategic plan written out. But I still find myself trying to find my way in the dark.

I guess we could use more details about your business and then maybe some of us could come up with ideas for an operational plan. Without the details of the kind of business you are in and the current stage the business is in there is really no place to start in terms of offering ideas.

Construction, I am a contractor that does residential remodels. The research I've found on operational plans mainly focuses on business that involve the sale of merchandise. Construction is a service which is totally different, I can include things such as quality control, how to implement proposals. I'm trying to think of ways to put it in a format that I can use, and what other things I can add.

I don't remember starting the thread in this section. Can someone move it to the General Small Business Issues?
