This page includes information to help you get started finding sources for your Mission Possible Business Proposal assignment.
Your Business Librarians, Martina King and Emily Villanueva, are available to help you navigate the library's databases, develop search strategies, and troubleshoot access issues to the library's online resources.
To get you started, we recommend using one of the library's industry and company focused databases:
Industry description & industry trends - use IBIS World Industry Reports - Industry Performance and Outlook
|Summary of Salaries, Wages, and Benefits|
|Address all key operational issues
To identify relevant operational issues and estimate their annual costs use:
Company Annual Balance Sheets and Reports: Mergent
Financial and SWOT Reports: Business Insights: Essentials
General Industry Financial figures - IBIS World Industry Reports - Operating Conditions
To identify and describe market areas, use:
Market Overview, use IBIS World Industry Reports - Products and Markets
To describe specific target markets, use:
Key Industry Success factors use IBIS World Industry Reports - Competitive Advantage
If you know the name of the industry your business would be a part of, you can search by keyword using their main search bar.
You can also browse for your industry report by hovering over the Industry Research tab and clicking on Canada Industry Reports (NAICS).
Start by identifying the broader category your business would fit under, then select the industry report that best fits with your business.
