Course description

A feasibility study is a vital method to safeguard against the wastage of scarce resources and investments. By implementing feasibility studies, companies can lower the risks of building unpopular and impractical projects. A feasibility study is conventionally carried out before writing a business plan and serves as a blueprint or roadmap for the business.

What are the benefits of feasibility studies?

A feasibility study evaluates the practicality of a proposed business plan or project. It analyses a project’s viability and merits to determine its success and shortcomings. There are several benefits associated with feasibility studies, including assisting project managers in determining a project’s likely pros and cons before conducting investments. It also offers the management team vital data that could prevent them from venturing into risky business enterprises. Feasibility studies allow organisations with new business development plans to discern their mode of operation, potential obstacles, amount of resources and finances needed, and market analysis.
