Once a firm has an idea of the targeted market and products/services they wish to offer they can move forward to the next step of establishing new opportunities. The first specific topic resource that may limit the search for new opportunities is marketing. If marketers for the firm do not target the right combination of prospective customers it can be a challenge to get a new firm to earn a reputable standing against pre existing and established firms. When a firm ventures out to expand or offer something totally new they have to prepare a variety of marketing. Marketing requires financial resources and research (Perreault, W.D, et. al, 2010).
The second specific topic resource that may limit the search for new opportunities is production capability. If companies dont have the necessary finances to conduct research and development (R&D) on the product or services they wish to offer they may not get past the process of brainstorming (Perreault, W.D, et. al, 2010). A firm may also be limited to new opportunities if they cannot keep up with the demand of products (production) and/or services (Perreault, W.D, et. al, 2010).
