Executive Summary
The following report is for the attention of the Glasgow City Council.
We have outlined a business plan for a new business to be set up for after the Glasgow Commonwealth Games in 2014. Our business idea is an interesting Games Experience in which the public will be able to pay to experience exactly what athletes have done during the games. The main selling point of this would be participating in competitions with the professional athletes outfit and equipment. On top of this, their experience would be filmed and they would be interviewed to be given the feeling that they have just competed in the Commonwealth Games. They would follow the same regimes as the athletes including timetables and diets to give the complete experience.
This report follows our decision making process in coming to our final business idea. Discussing the other alternative ideas, their strengths and weaknesses and then reasons for why this idea was prevalent on top of the other ideas. We take everything into consideration including the likes of demand and feasibility and also show financial forecasts, then showing why we made our choice.
This report also discusses our use of the theoretical framework for decision making to give a complete justification to our idea choice.

Council Objectives
With regards to the businesses that will be launched during the commonwealth games, Glasgow City Council and the Scottish Government will have objectives of their own and will also want some of the same outcomes. Firstly, one of the main objectives will be to support all of the new businesses that will be launched, through funding etc. This is a beneficial idea as it encourages people to start up small businesses that are necessary for our economy. By starting up a business you are not only creating a job for yourself, but also for others.
Another main focus of both the government and the council will be advertising. It would seem logical
