Research & Development 


One of the most important parts of any well-run business is research and development. Businesses use research and development to plan for the future. They spend time and money researching new ideas. They also budget for development - taking those new ideas, refining them, and bringing them to market. Cookie season is the perfect time to earn your Research and Development badge and take your cookie business to the next level!


The Girl's Guide to Girl Scouting can help you earn your financial literacy badge by following these 5 steps:

  1. Analyze sales trends
  2. Research how other companies innovate
  3. Find out how companies use R&D to improve their products
  4. Explore possible projects during your cookie sale
  5. Develop a fun, new way to use Girl Scout Cookies

When you have earned this badge, you'll know how to research and develop new ways to build your cookie business! Get started on your Research and Development badge today - refer to your Girl's Guide to Girl Scouting for complete instructions and activities.
