Feasibility Studies

A feasibility study main goal is to assess the economic viability of the proposed business. The purpose is to identify issues that would prevent the business from being successful in the marketplace. The study should provide a thorough analysis of the business opportunity, including a look at all the possible roadblocks that may result in the business failure. The outcome of the feasibility study will indicate whether or not to proceed with the proposed venture. If the results of the feasibility study are positive, then the organization can proceed to develop a business plan.

More about Feasibility Study

If the results show that the project is not a sound business idea, then the project should not be pursued. Although it is difficult to accept a feasibility study that shows these results, it is much better to find this out sooner rather than later, when more time and money would have been invested and lost. Identifying such roadblocks is the purpose of a feasibility study.

The study includes a basic break-even analysis to see how much revenue would be necessary to meet your operating expenses. A thorough feasibility analysis also provides a lot of information necessary for the business plan. For example, a good market analysis is necessary in order to determine the project’s feasibility. This information provides the basis for the market section of the business plan. A feasibility study looks at the following areas:

  • a. Market issues
  • b. Organizational & technical issues
  • c. Financial issues

Business Plan

If the feasibility study indicates that your business idea is sound, the next step is a business plan. The business plan has greater analysis and involves future projections. For example, the financial section of the plan would include financial statements and 2-3 years of financial projections.

There are two main objectives of a business plan. Firstly, it is an analysis of how well the business will work; and secondly, it is a written document for outside interested parties such as bankers, investors and other regulatory authorities.

More about Business Plan

A business plan help to analyze the business competition, the market, operating expenses, management and staffing needs, manufacturing process, etc. In the process of preparing the business plan, it helps the business owner to have a clearer picture of the business environment. For the business plan to succeed, it must be realistic and based on valid assumptions. Most people have to work at retaining their objectivity if they are doing the feasibility study and/or business plan themselves.

Having a business plan does not ensure success of the company. But by having a well structured business plan, it greatly reduces the risk of failure through thorough considerations of the entire business, and probably prepared for contingencies. It also gives investors better understanding and confidence of the company’s possible growth potential and allows entrepreneurs to convince investors of the viability of the business.
