What is a Feasibility Study?

What is a Feasibility Study?

A feasibility study is an assessment of a proposed project or business venture to determine its practicality and potential success. As part of a feasibility study, the objective and rational analysis of a potential business or venture is conducted to determine its strengths and weaknesses, potential opportunities and threats, resources required to carry out, and ultimate success prospects.  It has to be conducted before the project or venture is launched to determine whether it is viable and worth pursuing.

Who conducts a Feasibility Study?

 Feasibility studies are typically conducted by project managers, entrepreneurs, market researchers and investors to determine the potential risks, costs, and benefits of a proposed project.

Why you should conduct a Feasibility Study

The main purpose of a feasibility study is to provide a clear understanding of the project’s goals and objectives, and to identify any potential barriers or challenges that may impact the project’s success. The study typically involves a detailed analysis of the market, competition, resources, financial projections, and other factors that could impact the project.

 Key Components of a Feasibility Study

Market analysis:

This is conducted to determine the viability of a proposed product or service in the marketplace. The market assessment will also help to identify demand in the market, and at what price. If no opportunities are found, there may be no reason to proceed further with the feasibility study. If opportunities are found, the market assessment can give focus and direction in the construction of business scenarios to investigate in the feasibility study. A market assessment will provide much of the information for the marketing feasibility section of the feasibility study.

Technical analysis:

This involves determining the technical feasibility of the project. A technical feasibility study reviews the technical resources available for your project. This study determines if you have the right equipment, enough equipment, and the right technical knowledge to complete your project objectives.

Financial analysis:

This determines the financial feasibility of the project to know if it is fiscally viable or not. A financial feasibility report includes a cost/benefit analysis of the project. It also forecasts an expected return on investment (ROI), as well as outlines any financial risks. The goal at the end of this section is to understand the economic benefits the project will drive.

Organizational analysis:

This section determines the operational feasibility of the project. It is carried out to evaluate whether or not your organization is able to complete this project. This includes staffing requirements, organizational structure, and any applicable legal requirements. At the end of this section, your team will have a sense of whether or not you have the resources, skills, and competencies to complete this work.

In conclusion, feasibility studies are an important tool for project managers, entrepreneurs, and investors to assess the potential success of a proposed project or business venture. They provide a comprehensive understanding of the project’s goals, objectives, and potential risks, which helps stakeholders make informed decisions about whether to proceed with the project. By conducting a feasibility study, stakeholders can minimize the risk of failure and increase the likelihood of success.
