Coop Feasible

IN most cases developing a business is a complex undertaking that consists of several stages. In cooperative development, following a step-by-step deliberative process is important because of the need to review progress and obtain input from potential members after each step before deciding about whether to proceed with the project. The report “How to Start a Cooperative” (RBS CIR 7), presents a 12- step sequence of events recommended for creating a cooperative business. This guide elaborates on the fourth of the 12- step event sequence: conduct a feasibility study. A feasibility study is an integral part of cooperative business development. Conducting a feasibility study is not a theoretical research project, but rather is a focused study for a specific group that wants to explore forming a cooperative business.
