This course provides professionals with a firm basis to determine whether the project has sufficient merit to continue into a more detailed phase. This is achieved using a feasibility study. A well-developed feasibility study is an essential foundation to allow project analysis and design activities to commence in a focused manner. It either refines a business case by examining the range of options and potential issues or forms a basis for its development.

Feasibility studies address issues that could influence a potential project’s success and assess each option’s advantages and disadvantages so they can be ranked. The end product of the study is a clear, concise report which presents the proposed project’s objectives, with conclusions and recommendations for the next phase.
