I think you have to analyse both the options and then select the best one and do the business plan for that. And as far as I know, the business plan should have the marketing, HR and finance plan...and the other common things like the vision, mission, objectives and all that....

I think it would be good to discuss about Unit 5 in a separate thread.

Wow this thread is useful. For those who want to have the toolkit, you guys have to wait because tutor2u itself have not published it out yet and I think it'll be better for STRAI8 to post it up here instead of sending it one by one to everybody, save energy and time. So please stop sending request with your email on it, kinda flooding the thread, or just msg him privately.

Btw, he said he's going to get hard copy for the toolkit, not soft copy, so I guess it ll be hard to get the toolkit from him guys.

Anyway I m taking all the units this June. And I do not know how to revise for Unit 6. Just like most of you here, my lecturer isn't helping much so i hope this thread will be helping me
