You have been tasked with conducting a SWOT Analysis of Biotech and the infant formula industry; a PESTLE analysis using the location identified during Week 2 (Ohio) 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 tool’s 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) the company will use during its initial product line launch.

In addition to the internal and external analysis, you have been tasked with identifying four (4) major business goals that Biotech should initially be focused on as they venture into the infant formula industry.  These goals should focus on defining 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 and explained 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 four goals established as critical during entry into the infant formula industry.
