implementation of a project. This usually involves considering the resources that

will be needed during implementation and its availability. Thorough planning

should be done to assure success in the new business venture. A period of 1

month will be allocated for this activity.

Sourcing of Funds

implementers, these will still not assure successful realization of the project if the

necessary in the organization of the business. Sourcing of funds may be

necessary to obtain sufficient amount to cover cost during pre-operating and

operating period of the business. A period of 1 month will also be allocated for

mishaps. From the recruitment process to the orientation of the workers, a period

of one month is allocated.

the production, management will choose who among them. Two weeks will be

allocated in processing the purchasing.

introduce the venture, as well as the product, to the consumers. Firms usually

adapt different advertising schemes to gain publicity, at the same time, market

the product to the consumers. This activity will be done for three weeks

MANAGEMENT DURING THE OPERATING PERIOD

Accomplishing project timeline during pre-operating period will be the link

for the management in leading and successfully implementing the business

activities of the firm during operating period. Duties should be fairly separated

and responsibilities should be made clear to the people involved in the

operations. Resources should be made available for use for easy access during

the start of production period.

Form of Business Organization

A sole proprietorship is recommended as the form of business

organization with this proposed project. With this, at least five incorporators will

be needed and be the one who manages the business. They will share in profits

and losses generated through the firm’s operation.

Organizational Structure

An organizational chart shows the internal structure of an organization. It

is a visual representation of how a firm intends authority, responsibility, and

information to flow within its organizational structure.

This is important in any organization in order to identify the level of

authority. It provides guidance and clarity to employees at all levels of a

company. Without an organizational structure, employees may find it difficult to

know who they will report to in different situations.
