Expertise in Creating a Product
You have a great idea for a brand new product that you think will make you lots of money. However, you possess the expertise in creating the product, but not how to market the product, present the product, advertise the product or even how to mass produce the product. You only have a limited amount of funds and potential loans, so you cannot afford to use a trial and error approach. You decide to put together a group to help you to examine these issues. Describe each of the eight members of the group you will put together. Determine what similar or different characteristics you would want each of the members to have that are different than you. Determine who is going to lead the group and why. This may or may not be you. Describe how you will want or not want to influence the group’s decisions. Describe a conflict which arises and how the conflict was resolved. Finally, develop a short business plan based on the group’s decisions. In your summary and conclusions, note if you would have selected the group differently had you known more about them in advance.
