Capstone Project

students meeting

Apply what you learn in the classroom to your every day role, bringing direct ROI back to your organization. 

A cornerstone of learning in action, the capstone project offers a powerful return for both you and your organization. Based on an agreement between you, your sponsor and your coach, the capstone project lets you apply what you learn to an immediate challenge in your workplace. In addressing that challenge, you’ll be leading a team within your organization and working with your sponsor and your coach to improve processes in your operation.   Leading a team within your own organization, you will complete four, three-month improvement cycles over the course of the program. Your assigned coach will review your progress and mentor you through the entire process. '

A final report-out is a major element of the successful improvement project. In most cases, the benefits to the organization that flow from the project far exceed the tuition and related expenses for the program. More importantly, the hands-on project reinforces the classroom learning and provides the student an opportunity to quickly exploit MBOE learning to make a difference within their organizations.
