Assignment Objective
Developing a successful business idea is contingent upon formulating and working through a winning
business plan. A winning business plan comprises a substantive effort to craft a document that
extends beyond feasibility analysis to ensure that a viable foundation exists to create a successful
enterprise.
This business plan needs to:
• Demonstrate analytical and critical-thinking skills
• Apply business-related decision-support tools
• Asses and justify key decisions made
• Utilise and analyse external sources of data to support the plan (primary/secondary data)
Scenario
You have recently graduated and finished your studies and despite your best efforts, it has not been
possible to secure a job. Therefore, you’ve decided to take matters into your own hands and be a
master of your own destiny. Using your newly acquired knowledge and entrepreneurial skills, you
decided to create business ideas (Assignment 1).
You recently bumped into two old colleagues from college and discovered that they too wanted to be
masters of their own destiny. In fact, they also used the creativity techniques to produce potential
ideas for products and services. Working in a team, you decide to put all of the ideas together, then
pick a single idea and turn it into a business venture. Using knowledge of business management,
marketing, operations and finance, you set about producing a business plan.
When the business plan is complete, you realise that your business will need substantial investment
from outside. Understanding that a business plan is viewed differently from different stakeholders,
you create a presentation from your business plan – directed at potential investors.
Therefore, this assignment is broken into two parts:
4
Part 1: the Business Plan Report
Collaborate to develop a business plan for an idea or innovation (from Assignment 1). In writing
the business plan and presenting it to the class, you should consider:
1) What is the need that your business exists to satisfy?
2) How will your business satisfy the need?
3) How does your company differentiate itself?
4) Who will be the key players in the business?
5) How big is the market you are entering?
6) Who will you be targeting as customers?
7) What will be your most effective marketing and promotional strategies?
8) What are the economics of your business?
9) How much money is required to get your business started and generating revenue?
10) What needs to happen to break-even?
Part 2: the Business Plan Presentation
The write up of the business plan must be supported by a presentation (elevator pitch) of 10
minute duration to key stakeholders in-class (week 12).
A video recording of the presentation must be also be submitted (regardless of mode and
recorded separately).

Submission details
Please note that text in diagrams or tables does count towards the word count. References and a
bibliography (reference list) will not count. When submitting you must submit your assignment via
Turnitin.
Guidelines for completion:
• Report format and structure – expected to use headings.
• The overall word count should be +/- 10% of the stipulated words, inclusive of appendices,
words in diagrams, tables and figures. This will be strictly applied.
• Where you quote directly or take ideas from something you have read you must reference
these correctly using the Harvard referencing system, not numbered footnotes.
• Assignments should be word-processed and Times New Roman 12 point type.
• Diagrams are permitted, although the extensive use of graphics can sometimes reduce the
impact of your work rather than enhance it and they must add value. Only use diagrams if
necessary, keep them simple (avoid lots of colour for example) and remember to reference
them. Simple reproduction of established diagrams does not add value and will be penalised.
Submit your work with a cover sheet. This should include:
• The course title
• Course number
• Lecturer or Tutor Name
• Assessment title
• Student ID number (not your name)
7
• Use page numbers.
