MARKET RESEARCH

  • Pre-feasibility study

Before venturing into a new market, corporations as well as entrepreneurs usually have different scenarios that they want to explore. Pre-feasibility study is extremely useful in this case in order to analyze, compare and select the best among these scenarios, one that mitigates risks and optimizes benefits.

Our experienced analysts and consultants at Dieu Kim Consulting can assist you in doing this preliminary research, undertaking risk analysis, building models to compare various scenarios, which results in information that you can confidently use to select the best idea among the ideas proposed for your new projects.

 

  • Feasibility study

In this phase when a company has to make a “go/ no-go” decision, it is crucial that they evaluate all relevant factors of the project before investing any resource into it, whether it’s time, budget or human capital. Conducting a feasibility study is the way to do so. It identifies valid reasons to proceed (or not to proceed) with a project, narrowing down the alternatives, providing robust data for decision-making, enhancing the project’s success rate by assessing multiple parameters, and even identifying new opportunities.

Dieu Kim Consulting provides in-depth feasibility study with focus on the market feasibility component which include industry description, current market analysis, competition analysis, anticipated future market potential and sales projections. Other components that we also take into account are legal feasibility, organizational feasibility, financial feasibility and time feasibility, depending on the nature of each project and the needs of each client.

We believe that with our support, you can make informed decisions whether or not your project should be undertaken, and in the case that it should, you will have the best preparation possible for success.
