Tim Berry, President of Palo Alto Software and resident business planning expert, has been talking a lot about business planning lately. I’m going to chalk this up to his being involved in judging multiple business plan competitions in the last several weeks. So it’s more than likely been on his mind.

I thought I’d share a few of the articles Tim has written on the subject in the last couple of days.

On Entrepreneur.com

On his own blog, Planning Startups Stories
