Will your business be successful?
A feasibility study analyzes the viability of an idea, like your business idea. It helps you decide if this idea is something you should invest time and money into making a reality. What a feasibility study sets out to answer is:
- Will this business generate cash flow and profits?
- Will this business withstand the risks that it may face?
- Will this business remain viable for the long term?
A feasibility study should be done as early in the business planning process as possible. In a feasibility study, potential business owners and business consultants take a wider look at the business and the industry. First, people conducting a study look at a preliminary analysis. They prepare a projected income statement and conduct a market survey. Then, they consider the proposed business organization and operations for an opening day balance sheet. After reviewing and analyzing all the data gathered, they are ready to make a decision as to whether the business is viable and should be pursued – or if other changes should be made, or the business idea should be scrapped altogether.
The best way that experts can do a thorough analysis of the feasibility of a business is by taking a deep dive into the industry and talking to the stakeholders. This helps them to prepare a detailed feasibility report from their study:
- Executive summary of what is covered in the report
- Description of the business, product and services
- Considerations, like technology, investments, etc.
- Marketing strategy
- Business operations and staffing needs
- Timeline of projected milestones
- Financial projections
- Findings and recommendations of the feasibility study
