This week the group from GoTo Consulting has been tasked with conducting internal and external analysis of the cosmetics industry, and Biotech’s future in the industry; as well as developing the business strategy for Biotech as they move forward.  You have been tasked with conducting a SWOT Analysis of Biotech and the cosmetic industry; a PESTLE analysis using the location the group identified during Week 2 (you must use the location identified in week 2) for the new offices; and a Porter Five Forces analysis for the industry.  The group lead has requested that the analysis tools be accompanied with explanations that will breakdown the results of each analytical tools discoveries. With the results of this analysis, Biotech leadership should be able to make critical decisions on the types of products (and their corresponding ingredients) they will use during their initial product line launch.

In addition to the internal and external analysis, you have been tasked with identifying five (5) major business goals that Biotech should initially be focused on as they venture into the cosmetics industry.  These goals should begin to define the entry strategy that the organization should follow as it tackles moving into an industry new to the organization.  These goals should be robust but also attainable.  Having clear attainable goals is great, but the goals also need to have clearly defined objectives that will measure the progress to achieve these goals.  Meeting these objectives should result in the future success of their corresponding goals.  When writing these objectives, ensure they can clearly be related to the 5 goals established as critical during entry into the cosmetics industry.

Completing the Project 

In order to complete this project, you will want to first read the module, Learn How to Support What You Write, as this assignment requires you to use the course readings and research to support what you write.  Also, 

  • Read the grading rubric for the project.  Use the grading rubric while completing the project to ensure all requirements are met that will lead to the highest possible grade.  
  • Third person writing is required.  Third person means that there are no words such as “I, me, my, we, or us” (first person writing), nor is there use of “you or your” (second person writing).  If uncertain how to write in the third person, view this link:  http://www.quickanddirtytips.com/education/grammar/first-second-and-third-person
  • Contractions are not used in business writing, so do not use them.  
  • Paraphrase and do not use direct quotation marks.  Paraphrase means you do not use more than four consecutive words from a source document, but puts a passage from a source document into your own words and attribute the passage to the source document.  Not using direct quotation marks means that there should be no passages with quotation marks and instead the source material is paraphrased as stated above.  Note that a reference within a reference list cannot exist without an associated in-text citation and vice versa.   
  • Provide the page or paragraph number (required) when using in-text citations.  If using the eBook, use the Section title.
  • You are expected to use the case scenario, Biotech Company Profile, and weekly courses readings to develop the analysis and support the reasoning.   The expectation is that you provide a robust use of the course readings and demonstrate thorough research of the cosmetic industry.  The only external source material used is in relation to the research on the cosmetic industry.  Material used from a source document must be cited and referenced.  A reference within a reference list cannot exist without an associated in-text citation and vice versa. 
  • Use a wide array of the course reading as well as sources from your research.  The research should focus on information related to the cosmetic industry.
