ProjectOne is the FPS Autumn Semester engagement and organization-wide training opportunity. It is a large development or implementation level engagement sold to a major company with “brand name” recognition. The engagement is typically split into several smaller projects.
Project Team Consultants are put into teams of four to six and work throughout the Autumn Semester on the smaller projects in lock-step fashion with all other teams to complete the overall engagement. At the end of the semester, the teams compete to sell the client on which ideas have the most impact and implementable.
The goal is to simultaneously train incoming Consultants on working in a professional services firm, on project management, and on team building in a structured fashion.
