What is Feasibility Study Service?

A feasibility study service or feasibility analysis is conducted by business owners/ investors/ other key stakeholders to test the viability of a business idea/product or service idea/ project, etc. It is generally conducted before a formal business plan formation. A thoroughly conducted feasibility study will render accurate inputs on whether to go ahead with a new business/ product/ project. A feasibility study is an in-depth analysis, comprising all the vital aspects of the proposed project, to know the likelihood of the project’s success. This study helps project managers assess the risk and returns of pursuing a project. This can help in saving a lot of time and financial resources.

When it is Essential to Conduct a Feasibility Study?

A company should conduct a feasibility study in the following cases:

Objectives of Feasibility Study

  • A feasibility study evaluates a proposed project for its practicality and for its viability to determine whether it will be successful or not.
  • It determines whether a project is worth the investment or not because in some cases, a project may not be a worthy option.
  • It provides an independent assessment examining all aspects of a proposed project such as technical, legal, financial, economic, and environmental considerations.
  • It aims to create a realistic project plan and budget and without conducting a feasibility study it is difficult to know whether a proposed project is worth pursuing or not.
  • It helps in the creation of new ventures by providing vital information on vital factors like how the company will work, problems the company could face, information on its competitors, the amount of funding it can get, and from where it can get the funding.
  • It also helps in convincing banks and financiers that putting money into the project will make sense.

What are the benefits of the Feasibility Study for Business?

A feasibility study or feasibility analysis has numerous benefits, and hence it should be conducted before undertaking any new assignment. Some of the major benefits include:

  • Feasibility analysis can help in analyzing numerous alternatives, finding suitable ones, and streamlining the future growth strategy.
  • It also helps the team to make practical assumptions, and focus better on business goals.
  • Likewise, a feasibility study is also helpful in making investor presentations.
  • It may discover new ideas that could completely change a project’s scope.
  • It is best to know about the proposed project in advance rather than to start immediately and learn later that the project will not work.
  • It gives the company and the other stakeholders a clear picture of the proposed project.
  • It discovers valid reasons to undertake the project and also determines reasons for not proceeding with the project.
  • It evaluates the project on several parameters to enhance the success rate of the project.

Step 2 Market Study

In the next step, the business owners need to conduct a market study with the help of surveys/ polls, telephonic interviews, focus groups, etc. (one can either conduct one of the exercises or a mix of a few, depending on the scope of the study). The market study will help the business to know more about consumer behavior, consumer profiles, market segments, competition, pricing, size of the market, etc.
