Assignment 2: Feasibility Analysis

Assignment 2: Feasibility Analysis

Due Week 6 and worth 135 points

“A feasibility analysis is a chance to open your eyes, ask yourself some very tough questions, then check

to see whether your idea, as originally conceived, needs to be modified, refocused, or changed

dramatically. (Or perhaps even scrapped altogether.)” (Abrams, as cited in Scarborough & Cornwall,

2015, p. 237).

With this assignment, you will be addressing the fundamental question: Does this business have profit

potential?

Referring to the same business you either started or purchased in the first assignment, write a three to

four (3-4) page paper in which you:

1. Conduct a feasibility analysis in which you research:

1. Industry and Market Feasibility

2. Product or Service Feasibility

3. Financial Feasibility

4. Entrepreneurial Readiness

2. Based on your assessment, does the business idea need to be modified, changed significantly, or

abandoned? (Note: If you abandon the business idea, then you will need to select and analyze a

new business that has profit potential.)

3. Include at least two (2) references outside the textbook.

Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:

• This course requires use of Strayer Writing Standards (SWS). The format may be different than

other Strayer University courses. Please take a moment to review the SWS documentation for

details (more information and an example is included in the Strayer Writing Standards left menu

• Include a cover page containing the title of the assignment, the student’s name, the professor’s

name, the course title, and the date. The cover page and the reference page are not included in

the required page length.

The specific course learning outcomes associated with this assignment are:

• Describe and analyze the necessary activities and key decisions to start a small business.
