MT499 Unit 1
Assignment: Your Business Description
For this four to five page project, you will identify a business that you would like to start. Either
this can be an actual plan for a business you have thought about starting for years, or you can
create a hypothetical business for the purposes of this project.
You will describe the vision, mission, and the type of structure your business will take. In
addition, describe, as the leader, how you will manage the business in order to realize the vision
and achieve optimal performance.
Each week you will be addressing a different aspect of the business planning process. In the final
project, you will use information gained from the weekly projects along with information
obtained through research. Each week you add to the foundation for your business plan, which is
due at the end of unit 9.
