This consulting practicum theory course is designed to prepare students with the theoretical and practical background they need to engage in the art of consulting to make real change in the world. The broad number of topics covered make this course both challenging and rewarding, with concepts drawn from business, engineering, psychology, sociology, communications, literature, and more. These topics blend multiple academic disciplines into an analytical, systems, and abstract analysis approach to problem solving. Students will develop an understanding of organizations, how groups make decisions, and how one can influence those decisions. This is driven by the development of two parallel analysis techniques: quantitative and qualitative. The quantitative analysis techniques include such areas as systems design, data analysis, and process modeling. These are paired with qualitative techniques, including organizational analysis, decision modeling, and stakeholder analysis. This course is self-contained in that the topics covered are assessed within the course, but it is paired with and designed to be taken prior to Transform Maryland: Theories into Practice (HNUH219P), wherein students undertake a real-world consulting engagement for their client--the University of Maryland--to improve its business processes.
