Introduction to How to Manage Student Consulting Projects
Restricted access

The main purpose of the book is to highlight the key principles and tools needed by project advisors to manage student consulting teams in an academic setting. Much of our work comes from the authors’ experience with managing over 500 student consulting teams. The Introduction provides an overview to the chapters and other material found in this book. There is a brief discussion on improving the way student consulting teams are often run by having an intentional strategy that emphasizes the value of having competent project advisors. The value of the project advisors is further mentioned as a key resource in providing academic and emotional support during difficult times, such as the coronavirus pandemic. The use of virtual teams, discussed in Chapter 6, is also cited as a resource for project advisors. In addition, three articles written exclusively for the book focus on the topics of diversity and inclusion, problem solving in consulting and delivering effective presentations to clients.
