Your research paper must answer the following question: Why does this failure happen,

and how can it be avoided? You will need to research a small business or use your

entrepreneur that you interviewed to learn about failure. The paper will have three


Failure Introduction: Your first 2 pages should be a background of the failed business.

What was the business? Who were their competitors? What was their mission or

business vision? When did the business start and then fail?

Reason for Failure: This section (2 pages) requires your insights and will be a large

part of your grade. You must describe why the business failed. There are many reasons

small companies fail, and you should do some basic research (hint – some scholarly

research is required here) to determine the common causes and then compare this

research to your company.

Your Analysis: The last section (2 pages) should be what could have been done, in

your opinion and based on the knowledge you received in class (another hint – more

scholarly research could be used here), to avert the failure. Could the entrepreneur

have planned better? Was the idea sound but the implementation poor? Simply put, as

the observer after the fact, how could this business have survived?

It is important: Do not write 5 pages on the company and save the last page for the

reason and analysis. Please use the guidelines above to ensure that you maximize your

effort on this project.

Remember, the point of this research project is for you to evaluate a failure, determine

the causes of the failure, and introduce a way the failure could have been averted. This

project will give you some insight for your own potential business idea and help you

avoid some of the mistakes others have made. As stated above, failure is common in

small business; conduct some solid research on this project to identify the risks, so you

can create mitigation techniques to increase your chances of success when you venture

out with your plan!
