LV-Beschreibung

Intendierte Lernergebnisse

Capstone students should strive for the development of realistic skills and applications. These will include, but not be limited to, time management and project tracking. Effective leadership skills, and followership roles.  Each task group will have to develop and work within its own team, but also each team, or task group, will have to work together to create a joint final project; therefore, team development and management are essential to any Capstone project.  Students should develop professional skills, including: effective listening, dispute resolution, and audience appropriate, professional communication.  Students should learn how to develop and manage a relationship with a client.  Students are expected to be able to research, analyze, and make a decision, even under uncertainty.  Overall, students should successfully operate and handle many tasks and expectations under various resource and time constraints.  Lastly, students will present professional deliverables.

Students will apply policy analysis skills, design and carry out research, gain an understanding of the organizational operational, managerial and strategic challenges, and propose new managerial and organizational practices along with specific strategies to enhance the impact and effectiveness of the organization. The course will also provide opportunities to develop project and team management and analytical skills as well as apply professional oral and written communication skills.


The course will have a workshop format.  Thus, class members will self-divide into groups to address the various aspects and tasks of the project.  Each group should focus on a specific task of the project.  While the exact structure and focus of each group will be established by class consensus and instructor and client input, an initial structure should consider how group participants can best be structured and organized to achieve the relevant task within the time schedule.  Students will also need to establish an organizational structure to coordinate both within and across groups, to generate the final recommendations and summary analysis, and to work with the Client.  The precise organizational structure will be established by class members with input and guidance from the instructor.
