DBA-809 Organizational Consulting: Process Consultation, Avocation, and Business Sustainability

This course will focus on the process of consulting for organizations of all sizes and defining the role of the consultant through the development of a contract for services and deliverable schedules. A consultant must be able to create rapport with the client and define achievable objectives for the contracted services. Defining and agreeing on achievable objectives is the first step in the process. Once defined, the consultant must design an approach to gathering data, analyzing markets, and interpreting the information to meet objectives successfully. This allows the consultant to advocate for a specific set of choices that meet business objectives and support sustainability. By the end of the course, students will be able to create a contract, develop SMART (specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and time bound) objectives, select data collection methods that fit specific scenarios, interpret information, and advocate for a set position in writing.
