July 2011- Short form Skills CV for use with Business Plans

Bob Westrip

Part of the Business Planning Guide, Section 6

Short form skills should be produced for key personnel and the purpose is to demonstrate to the reader that the skills required to deliver what is in the Business Plan, are either there or are being addressed.

It is NOT a list of jobs done (although they may be used to demonstrate that the skill is there) or qualifications (although they may be shown where they are essential for the job) but rather a focus on the skills needed to run a business.

These are likely to include:

  • Management
  • Monitoring
  • HR
  • Finance
  • Operations
  • Production
  • Sales
  • Marketing
  • Delivery
  • Complaints/Queries
  • Internet/IT
  • Future – Ideas
