Client Project Overview
Student groups complete client-based projects under the direction of Professor Donald Moynihan, within the context of a semester-long course. By the end of the semester, each group submits a written performance management analysis and presentation.
The nature of the topic will depend on specific client interests. It could be an analysis or development of a unit’s performance management framework, strategic planning process, or mission statement; an analysis of a specific management process or reform in place; a literature review of the effectiveness of particular performance practices.
The most important element for assessing the viability of performance management projects is a clear and high-profile client, with a contact person in a position to respond to students and facilitate conversations.
How to Submit a Proposal
Project proposals will be vetted in early September, and Don will contact you if your project is a good fit for that semester's course. Proposals should include the following information:
- Organization name
- Client sponsor names, and (if different) person who will serve as the primary point of contact and liaison with the client teams throughout the project, and contact information for both
- Brief description (1 to 2 paragraphs) of the key questions you would like to address
