PS3003: Special Problems
Prerequisites: Completion of PS 3143 and permission of the program advisor.
This course will provide an opportunity for the student to facilitate a process for identifying a specific problem in an actual industry or business environment relevant to the student's specialty area. The student will outline a formal plan of action for identifying the problem. The plan must include a broad scan of the specific area/operation selected including the names and titles of the individuals surveyed for input. The end product will be the development of a formal needs assessment which identifies deficiencies or areas of improvement. The needs should be prioritized on the basis of feasibility, cost, and urgency.
