How to Prepare a Good Feasibility Study

No comments

"Those who do not do their homework do not graduate." Bryce's Law

In its simplest form, a Feasibility Study represents a definition of a problem or opportunity to be studied, an analysis of the current mode of operation, a definition of requirements, an evaluation of alternatives, and an agreed upon course of action. As such, the activities for preparing a Feasibility Study are generic in nature and can be applied to any type of project, be it for systems and software development, making an acquisition, or any other project.

There are basically six parts to any effective Feasibility Study:

1. The Project Scope which is used to define the business problem and/or opportunity to be addressed. The old adage, "The problem well stated is half solved," is very apropos. The scope should be definitive and to the point; rambling narrative serves no purpose and can actually confuse project participants. It is also

China telecoms: Mobility problems

No comments

China Mobile is struggling to hold its own against innovative new competitors. Can the company reinvent itself?

China Mobile, the country's largest wireless operator by subscribers, seems to have lost its way of late. Its basic GSM service, which used to rake in heaps of money, lost nearly 12m customers during the first four months of this year. Its 3G TD-SCDMA service has had a bumpy start. To make the situation even more precarious, 4G TD-LTE is making little headway without a licence, and it is not clear how many customers it will recruit once rolled out.


Meanwhile, China Mobile's traditional SMS services – once the most popular in the land – saw volume and revenue slide by about 7% in 2012 while revenue from voice inched up only 2%. And the wireless behemoth is under attack from a number of OTT operators in areas of mobile IM, P2P video, games and mobile apps. Many of these OTTs were once China Mobile’s service providers, but have gradually turned into fierce

Pricing Objectives

No comments



Pricing objectives are overall goals that describe what the firm wants to achieve through its pricing objectives. Before setting prices, marketers should always begin by considering objectives, which are overall goals that describe the role of price in an organization’s long-range plans. Because pricing objectives affect decisions in other functional areas such as finance, accounting and production, the objectives must be consistent with marketing and organizational objectives.

Prices are set to meet both short term and long-term goals. Short-term goals relate to survival while long run pricing objectives derive directly from company objectives. They provide guidance to decision makers in determining price policies, formulating pricing strategies and setting actual price.
