Underestimation of Requirements

Similar to the issue with team sizes previously discussed, we have found a number of businesses underestimating both the work requirement and their bandwidth availability. This has mainly been found in current students who moved from one course level to another and did not realise the expansion of time required for their new course. We now discuss potential bandwidth in detail will all prospective programme applicants during their interview to ascertain their available bandwidth and make them think about time viability for their business ideation.
 
Recommendations

  1. Discuss pre-interview the bandwidth requirements the founders can supply to the business and help them ensure this is realistic.
