Green Means Go - Or Does It?
Even when your feasibility study gives you the green light to move forward with a campaign, your team can greatly benefit from campaign pre-planning support.
What's pre-planning support? Isn't that part of the feasibility study?
A thorough feasibility study answers the question: Will our community provide enough support to make this effort a reality?
A feasibility study mitigates risk so that you don’t move forward with a project that won’t garner support. Once a positive feasibility study is complete, most organizations assume they have a green light to “pass go and collect $200" (or $200,000).
