Students will work in a team acting as a virtual management consultancy on a managerial project identified by a host health organisation. The host health organisation will be identified along with several potential project topics, and the student team will negotiate within the team their initial approach to the consultancy task. The team will need to adopt a variety of roles, following that consultation, to produce a proposal for the consultancy, outlining the expected roles and tasks required to complete the consultancy, the roles allocated to individuals, and the proposed milestones. A short period of negotiation is undertaken to confirm the deliverables, including milestone reports, between the student team, subject coordinator/s and the host organisation representatives. Students are expected to draw on the knowledge, skills and abilities that have been developed in completing the eight core subjects prior to enrolling in this capstone learning experience. The host organisation will determine the project they wish to engage the student team on, and an agreed timeline will be proposed for the submission of an Expression of Interest before the actual project commences. The student team will be expected to self-manage and negotiate the guidance and involvement of stakeholders to ensure the successful completion of the project.
