required to design a creative business model that relies on having identified value opportunities or innovation gaps. To do so, you will have to justify the problem/solution, or the opportunity being exploited. Here, this can be for both a new and existing proposition. You will be expected to provide a clear implementation plan demonstrating tangible outputs at every stage possible. To do so, you are encouraged to be as factual as possible, rely on theory and frameworks (these should be to support the central tenet of the proposition) 
Some pointers for consideration include Problem /Solution Fit; Product/Market Fit, Value Propositions, an operational plan, Financial considerations [at least three year sales forecast and an income statement], Marketing plan, Growth/Scaling Plan, Plan to attract investors [*optional depending on the contextual underpinning] and an exit strategy [for particular stakeholders]

To achieve this- it is vital that you provide a clear context- by addressing some of the following questions- Is this viable opportunity;  is it an existing business, are you at the stage of seeking funding, are you at the initial stage of starting the business- Here the context will allow you to develop a business model that is in line with context.

Paper should be at least 6 pages long.  Not including table of contents, references page (APA) format.

Guide lines:
This is where feasibility analysis fits in. Your job is to conduct a mini-feasibility analysis of a professional pitch from the Shark Tank TV show.

This assignment should be no more than three pages total (single-spaced, 11-point font). As with the case assignments, it is imperative that you connect to the course literature as part of the assignment. In other words, be sure to include in-text citations, references and a reference list (as appropriate).

Also, you are encouraged to access outside industry or market reports, competitorsweb pages, or other information to inform your feasibility.
Your submissions (crafted in Microsoft Word, please!) should answer the questions found below, individually and in the order they are posed. Please clearly mark when you start a new question by starting a new paragraphdont intermingle the questions, please!

2) Describe the main opportunity(s) involved in your selected pitch. Highlight parts of the feasibility of the business concept involved in your chosen pitch by describing the characteristics of the opportunity and related concept (or at least the entrepreneurs understanding of the issues) below. If they are not explicit about these, please infer and justify why as appropriate. Help do a bit
of feasibility analysis for the entrepreneur (see week 3 asynch materials and applicable readings). Please use outside sources such as industry or consumer reports, competitors web pages, or statistics about the market to amplify any information you might need. Be sure to note any references and citations.

Some of the main issues are:
a. That they have the right customer
b. That they have the appropriate way to reach that customer
c. Their main source of differentiation and value-add over the next best alternative
d. Customers willingness to pay the price (in line with point c above regarding value-add)
e. The price-cost relationship (such as margins, profitability, tech development, etc.)
f. Industry features and dynamics
g. Their ability to deliver on the concept as described

3) What are your conclusions about the feasibility of the opportunity(s)? What factors lead you to make this assessment? Be specific and address each opportunity. You dont have to agree with the sharks on this; they might be looking at different factors than you are.

4) What are the three or four overall takeaways (lessons learned) from watching this pitch and the comments of the Sharks for your own entrepreneurial career and feasibility analysis? This is an important part of the assignment, so make sure you put inappropriate thoughts and connections.

This activity will provide you with an opportunity to engage in discussion on a project management topic that was covered in this module. The class interaction will foster a learning environment in which you will learn from each others experiences and opinions. In addition to that, you will practice using the project management jargon and express your opinions in a professional manner. The options available in this discussion have ethical considerations that are important to consider as a project manager.
Outsourcing is a common practice in business, and it may be an option for a project you are responsible for managing. Understanding the considerations necessary for making the best decision for a project is essential to a successful project.
Respond to the following:
A project you are managing has a supply-chain issue. You are not able to continue utilizing a primary vendor. Select a product that would be essential to a project and identify the pros and cons of outsourcing an element of the project. What are the pros and cons of outsourcing? What could you do to minimize the negative effects?
Identify at least one element for each of the six outsourcing considerations in your answer.
Consult the Discussion Posting Guide for information about writing your discussion posts. It is recommended that you write your post in a document first. Check your work and correct any spelling or grammatical errors. When you are ready to make your initial post, click on the “Reply”. Then copy/paste the text into the message field, and click “Post Reply.”

This assignment is a case study. You will be presented with information concerning a company facing a situation that requires at least one decision to be made. Read the case and using the course material and your additional research, write a short paper that briefly identifies the issues and proposes a solution that includes a justification for your choice.
This assignment considers the information provided in the Shell Case Fabricators (SCF) case. It can be found at the end of Chapter 12 of your text in the case section after the blue pages. Additional questions have been added, so please use the text only for the case material and not the assignment. To complete the assignment, follow the steps listed below:
Read the Shell Case Fabricators case at the end of Chapter 12.
Create a paper responding to the following questions (ignore the questions in the textbook and only answer these questions):
Consider the proposal. Should SCF accept or reject ACLs request? If you were the project manager, which option would you select? What risks are involved with your choice and with ACLs request?
How should SCF negotiate with ACL? How can SCF and ACL develop a positive, long-range relationship? Give specifics.
Would it be possible to outsource some of the project elements, and would it be ethical as this is already a subcontracted project? What other options are available that you could consider?
If you were to look for another solution, what would you include in your request for proposals (RFP)?
Write a three page paper in Word format. Use the American Psychological Association (APA) style (6th edition) for writing your assignment.
Compose your work in a .doc or .docx file type using a word processor (such as Microsoft Word, etc.) and save it frequently to your computer.

Shell Case Fabricators

BACKGROUND

Shell Case Fabricators (SCF) designs and builds shell casings that enclose
electronic products such as calculators, cell phones, modems. Typically the cases
are plastic or plastic compounds. SCF has six different production lines that cover
different types of product. For example, the largest high volume production line
for modems can produce three different colors and two models (vertical and flat).
Air Connection Links (ACL) is the biggest customer that buys product from this
line. This high output line now runs at full capacity on an eight-hour shift. The
other five lines run smaller quantities and tend to meet the needs of other specialty
products manufactured by different smaller firms.
Ninety-five percent of SCFs product casings line is designed by the original
hardware manufacturer. Getting a casing to the production stage requires a great
deal of collaboration and interaction between the original hardware and case design
manufacturer (e.g., ACL) and SCFs shell design engineers and production
department. The latest new product of ACL is a modem designed to be used for
monitoring water activity in bays, e.g., ship traffic, pollution, floating debris. Because
of the products high functionality and low cost, potential demand for the
new product is out of sight. It seems every country with small bays used for shipping
wants enough underwater modems to cover their respective bays.
THE UNDERWATER MODEM PROJECT
At SCF each new product is assigned a project manager to coordinate and manage
the shell design, budgets, and manufacturing startup. Songsee is SCFs star project
manager and is the project manager of the shell for the new short-range,
underwater acoustical modem. The shell casing for the underwater modem
required special design, materials, custom equipment, and a seal to withstand
pressure to 50 meters. Air Connection Links, the product owner, needs sixty
thousand modems in 91 days (next January 15) for the Estuary Control Institute
meeting in Hong Kong.
CLIENT CHANGE REQUEST
Songsee has felt the project was moving along smoothly, with the exception of
being two weeks behind schedule. She feels she can lean on the design department
to put the project on top priority and make up the two weeks. Yesterday,
ACLs project manager, Sabin, came in with a simple change. Change the outer
shell shape from rectangular to dome shape; it will improve performance 2 percent.
Songsee couldnt believe Sabin. He knows better. He knows the engineering
implications, and it is NOT simple! Yet Sabin tells Songsee, It shouldnt cost
much. Songsee imagined a sharp retort, but she counted to five and aborted. At
this late stage of the game, changes and schedule compression cost big money!
Songsee said she would get together with her team and start on a new time and
cost estimate today. She told Sabin he would have to give her a written change request
of the new requirements by tomorrow. Sabin appeared disappointed. Why
dont we just add 100,000 to the price and get on with it? We have been doing
business with SCF for six years. With expected demand out of sight, SCF will
break even quickly and have a great profit on the production side. Songsee
sighed. Lets proceed with the change order process. I will bring your request to
the change order governance committee.
Songsees meeting with her team about the change went about as expected.
Every department moaned about changing at this late date. The guesstimate cost
and time estimates were over triple Sabins idea of 100,000. For example,
designing a new seal for a dome style modem will require a new custom water
sealing approach, possibly an untested different sealant, and new molds. Has ACL
frozen the design of the new style modem? Songsee asked the team to come in
with a more detailed estimate by tomorrow afternoon, before her meeting with the
change order governance committee.
THE NEXT DAY (FRIDAY)
Sabin called from ACL at midmorning the next day. Our senior management is
upset that we have to be so formal for such a small change. They just want to get
on with the project and meet the time to market launch date. 100,000 seems
like a fair price. They believe you need to talk to your management. They want a
response by Monday.
The team estimates came close to yesterdays guesstimate (391,000). Not good
news. Songsee knew the answer of the change committee would be to hold for the
full amount. She was right. The change committee believed the costs are there and
need to be covered to meet the launch date. The committee was also concerned
that priorities and resource scheduling would have to change for SCFs design and
production departments. In three hours she would meet with senior management
to decide to accept the clients request at their price or come up with an alternate
plan. Songsee realized she should have several options for senior management to
consider, along with a recommendation.
