1. Identify the Client
The client can be your own work group or organization, a family business you are involved with, a business you worked for previously, a volunteer organization you work or have worked with, or a public or private company. The client you choose should be a small group or organization where you, as a consultant, can influence change. Please do not select “the military” or “the U.S. government” or “Giant XYZ Corporation.”
2. Identify the Problem
With your knowledge of the client you have identified and the learning you have acquired to this point, identify a management problem you will investigate and for which you will provide recommended solutions. Only write a paper to identify the problem; do NOT try to solve it. This eight week course is based on a systematic process to use strategy to solve the problem you choose, so DON’T get ahead of yourself.
If you are working with a supervisor or manager, you may want to consult with them to complete this step. Some questions you can explore to help you are:

What are the mission, vision, values, and goals of the company/division/workgroup?
In considering the mission, vision, values, and goals, where does progress halt?
Is there data to substantiate this or is it a perception of you and/or the manager?
Who is involved: the manager, the employees, and/or stakeholders?
How long has this problem existed?
What and how are expectations and requirements communicated?
When expectations or key deadlines are missed, what happens?
What factors contribute to the problem (politics, structure, decision making factors, etc.)?
Are technical skills or training contributing to the problem?
Are there ethical issues relating to the problem?
If so, how have those issues been handled to date?
