Consulting Assignment

A minimum of ten (10) pages double spaced must be submitted and make sure you use course material to supplement your arguments. Use references (and cite APA style). In this required assignment, you should choose from one of two general alternatives on which to write your paper:

1. A self-assessment of your consulting skills based on your work and school experience. Outline what skills a consultant needs and how your skills match. Then free-form an essay while answering the following: What skills did you perform well? Which were you deficient? Were these the skills you assumed consultants needed before the course started? How have your views changed or remained the same about consulting? What would you have to do to improve your skills if you were to pursue a career in consulting? Take online tests/assessments to gain insight and provide evidence. Use examples and evidence from other classes and past work history to support your conclusions. Try to make it an honest assessment that can be useful to you in the future.

Subject matter should have key elements covered; content is comprehensive, accurate, persuasive; displays an understanding of relevant theory; major points supported by specific references; and research is adequate/timely and citations are academically valid.
