Course Description: Do you have an idea for a new revenue-generating program or a program for which you want to write a business plan? This module will take you through the process of creating a feasibility plan, a necessary step before writing a full business plan, to determine whether your idea is worth pursuing. This module will help you know what to consider when writing your feasibility plan and which sources will provide pertinent information.
After completing this module, participants should be able to:
- Answer the question, “Is this a good idea?”
- Gather data and research information needed to write the feasibility plan.
- Write a feasibility plan (in preparation for a full business plan).
The primary audience is managers and program planners in local health departments.
This HTML-based online module has interactive exercises (Flash-based) and should take approximately 75 minutes to complete.
