Chapter 4: First steps to take in managing student project teams
Restricted access

This chapter describes how project advisors manage student teams during the first few weeks of the semester. Focus is placed on the initial meetings of the project advisor with the client, and then with the student team. Students are encouraged to quickly come up to speed by learning about the client and industry through secondary research; developing a Team Charter to define student strengths, expectations and how the team will work together; and identifying the main components of the Engagement Contract (the document that defines the scope of work and expectations to both the client and the team). Project advisors will describe the grading criteria and the role professional behaviors play in the program.
