Hi all, I need help with the following:
In this module’s journal, you will outline your plan for completing the final project and share your current progress on selecting the main elements to focus on.
I'm trying to write a paper about how a consultant can best leverage their services to help reduce company turnover at a bank. I'd appreciate guidance on the various parts, which I've included as an attachment.
Thanks so much for your help and please message me with any other questions.
The Final Project in Module Nine provides you with a chance to delve deeper into your reasons for taking the course, explore the type of consulting you aspire to practice, and decide whether you want to work as an independent practitioner or for a consulting firm. It serves as a platform to create a business or career plan that aligns with your interests and professional goals, facilitating a valuable learning experience.
In this module’s journal, you will identify what you would like to accomplish in the final project and how it applies to your future business or career plan. You will also outline the first element of the final project paper, your company description. In addition, you will select and outline the other main elements of the project you plan to focus on. Choose from the main elements listed below and see the Final Project Guidelines and Rubric.
Main Elements: Include most of the main elements and requirements listed below. Cite multiple examples to illustrate each element. Modules where you will find resources are noted for each main element.
Company Description: Include services provided, markets, problems being addressed, the value provided to your prospective clients, and the organizational plan (e.g., sole proprietor, partners, or teaming). See Modules One, Three, and Six.
What problems are you solving for your target customers? If you intend to pursue different markets, identify by segment.
As you think about your organizational plan and strategies, how will you approach the market: as a solo player, partner, or team with another organization?
Market Position: Describe your skills and position in it based on your strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats (SWOT) analysis and other research, such as competitive positioning. See Module Eight. Based on your assessments and research, describe the services you would provide.
Marketing Plan: Describe your marketing strategy and execution of a plan to differentiate your business in the marketplace. See Modules Eight and Nine.
How large do you think your market is, and how will your targets value the services you provide?
Define your goals in terms of the number of engagements and revenues in the first year and the fifth year of operation.
Business Launch Plan: Use SWOT analysis to determine your readiness to go to market as a consultant. See Module Eight. Are you ready to go to market now? What would you like to accomplish before launching the business?
Write a journal paper outlining what you would like to accomplish with your final project and how it applies to your future business or career plan. Include the following in your paper:
Company Description: Provide all of the information described in letter A in the overview above.
Other main elements you plan to include in your final project: Choose from letters B through D in the overview and describe your reasons for choosing them. You are required to include most of the main elements in your final project to achieve an exemplary grade.
