Abstract: This paper investigates the dimensions of time and effort and how these factors impact on the venture creation process in Australia. Findings of interest in this paper include: ? First and foremost business planning is used as a thinking tool within the boundaries of the firm. ? Business planning is more strongly associated with firms that are more ambitious, being built by teams, draw on more experience or education. ? Industry characteristics in part drive the duration required for venture creation. Manufacturing and Agriculture based firms seemingly take longer timeframes than other industries. Extended venture creation times frames are also associated with firms that aim to bring more novel concepts to market.
