About the course
How can you determine whether an idea has the potential to make a significant contribution to the profitable growth and sustainable success of your organisation?
This Oxford training course will enable you to do precisely that. Much time is lost or wasted when business teams are unable to decide whether a new idea can be developed into an attractive commercial project that is consistent with company strategy and objectives. Feasibility analysis is a structured process that demonstrates how to judge whether new ideas have potential to be developed into significant new products or services that meet the changing needs of your target customers.
Feasibility analysis combines quantitative approaches with creative thinking and looks at new ideas from all standpoints – technical, economic, commercial and financial. Using multiple examples of feasibility analysis in different business sectors, we will enable you to evaluate new ideas for your company and help create a different future based on innovation, growth and change. It also addresses in depth the specific challenges of project financing of feasible projects.
