Help needed from my reader(s) with my final case project for my MBA program


I’m stuck and need your help.

Yes you.

I need a underachieving technology to perform a MBA study on.

Know of one?

Or maybe you know of a product you have heard about, or used, that just didn’t seem to fit? Have your thoughts and opinions heard, then studied.

My MBA project team, needs to find such a product and with the assistance of the owner of this / these product(s) we will perform a complete evaluation of it and offer any recommendations to the company to help the technology hopefully with a new life. All this is under the guidence of our professor who was a member of the marketin team that brought Tic Tac’s to Canada.

Please reply ASAP!!

Thanks
