Ive been working on a business plan for a business plan contest recently. It’s the first time that I write a business plan and to be honest, its opened my eyes on many different levels.

Here is a conclusion I came to after mentally going over the RUP project management method in my head. The business plan is like the Vision document of RUP. It forces you to write down the vision and drives your thought towards the feasibility of the idea or project.

I feel that this mental process of formally writing down the vision greatly increases the chance of success of the project at hand. This process of writing down and considering the details of an implementation is something that I do not feel comes natural to the SCRUM setup.
