Introduction

Many organisations commit to a course of action that produces unsatisfactory results. This is almost always due to poor feasibility analysis before decisions are made. There is overwhelming evidence that project success is much more likely to be achieved in cases where a rigorous feasibility study has been carried out. This seminar is designed to introduce best practice in feasibility analysis and to demonstrate how the effective application of this analysis in all dimensions of business development can result in market-leading levels of competitive performance - resulting in sustained business excellence.

The seminar will highlight:

  • Best practice in fixing the scope and structure of a feasibility study
  • Analysing technical feasibility
  • Analysing economic and commercial feasibility
  • Analysing financial feasibility
  • Linking feasibility studies to the strategic plan of the organisation

Objectives

This seminar is designed to develop expertise in 5 key areas. At the end of this seminar you will learn to:

  • Execute an effective feasibility study prior to making a major decision
  • Define the main outcomes that will be monitored and measured
  • Integrate and align each feasibility study with the overall strategic plan
  • Keep all types of project on target in changing business conditions

Training Methodology

The seminar leader will deploy a full range of dynamic and interactive training methods. This will comprise a carefully balanced programme of conventional teaching, supported by real examples and case experience of individual issues. This will enhance learning through practical activities so participants can develop knowledge and skills to develop their part of the business. In addition delegates will be given the chance to work in groups on case studies to develop their skills in the key aspects of this subject. Above all the seminar leader will illustrate the main learning points with examples of real-life decisions on feasibility analysis and business planning in which he has been personally involved.
