Business Feasibility Workshop
A First Cut Analysis, is a comprehensive overview of the market research process to help value-added agricultural entrepreneurs analyze their business ideas.
However, the principles and methods you will learn in this guidebook will help you analyze almost any business opportunity.
What if you are already in business? The tools and techniques in Business Feasibility will help you identify opportunties in the marketplace and potential threats to your business before they happen so you can take advantage of the opportunities and take steps to minimize the threats.
Case studies are used to demostrate how to conduct the analysis. In Business Feasibility, we do not simply tell you what you should do, we show you how to do it.
