Abstract

We concluded that a hockey couching tool could be designed for mass market use. A business selling this product would become profitable, but not at this time. The groups analysis of the market showed that coaches would adopt the product over current coaching tools. Our analysis of the feasibility, however, revealed that the necessary business infrastructure to support manufacturing and sale of this product does not exist at this time. We recommend the inventor patent the product then build a prototype. Later, through licensing with business partners that have adequate manufacturing facilities and distribution networks, our client could make money.
