select a company to spend the semester examining and developing a growth strategy and plan for.  Choose a small or medium sized business of your choice, as long as it is not on the off-limits company list.  The main requirement is that they have a website with information on their current products, customers, markets, etc., as this is how you will acquire the information needed to complete the write-up.  If your team needs help in choosing a company, please let me know as soon as possible so that I can help you select one that is appropriate.
