In the field of technical writing, technical writers are assigned to create a wide range of documents, from white papers to business plans, user manuals, and so much more. Today we will discuss another type of document technical writers often create called feasibility studies. In this post, we will briefly talk about what it is and the value it brings to any business venture.

What are Feasibility Studies?

A feasibility study is a document that describes how well you will succeed or fail at a new business plan or project. Depending on the type of business venture you pursue a feasibility study may include the following key information:

  • Technology – This will outline what technological resources are needed for your project or determine if your organization already meets the requirements. 
  • Constraints – Identify what challenges your organization may face when executing your plan.
  • Legality – Organizations will have to ensure business plans and projects are compliant with the laws and regulations within their respective industries.
  • Finances – Businesses will need to assess and take into consideration the cost of completing a proposed business plan or project.
  • Schedule – The timeframe it will take to complete this project and any contingency plans if operations do not go as planned.
  • Methodology – The course of action needed to complete the plan or project.
  • Solutions/Recommendations – This section will aid in the decision process and determine what is best for the company and its objectives. This may include listing the best solutions or recommendations to the problem or there may be a recommendation not to pursue a business venture because it offers no value to the company.

The Value of a Feasibility Study

Feasibility studies are important because they break down the logistics of how a plan, technology or project will work before an organization fully commits to it. Which in turn can save businesses a lot of time, money, and resources if they decide to pursue it or not. Furthermore, it helps businesses assess and understand what problems they face and what course of action is required to be successful.


A feasibility study is an essential technical document all organizations need to determine whether their business venture is worth pursuing. With a feasibility study, the decision-making process is easier than ever and most importantly, the insight businesses obtain from a feasibility study ensures only successful investments.
