À propos du cours

The capstone project will consist of three options, and you will complete one of them as part of the course. The first option is working with senior-level executives to help them solve their most pressing leadership challenges. Two (2) senior-level executives from leading organizations will provide detailed descriptions of ongoing leadership challenges that they are currently facing within their organizations. The challenges will be real and current. You will be asked to help the executives think through how best to approach and address their respective leadership challenges. Specifically, you will be tasked with drafting a memo to one of the executives outlining your recommendations for how best to address the leadership challenge. To offer effective advice and counsel, you will need to use course concepts and frameworks to (a) diagnose the fundamental issue(s), and then (b) develop a coherent set of solutions or recommendations. The memos will be evaluated based on how effectively you apply course concepts to diagnose the problem and how well you link your proposed solutions to the diagnosis. The best submissions will be sent to the executives for their review, and each executive will offer feedback that will then be shared with the entire class to advance everyone’s learning. The second option is to identify your own leadership challenge (e.g., at work, at school, in your local community). You should be directly involved in the challenge, and the challenge must align with at least one topic from the specialization. You will develop a presentation where you use course concepts and frameworks to (a) diagnose the core leadership challenge and barriers to effective performance, and then (b) develop a coherent set of solutions or recommendations for your own leadership challenge. The third option asks you to interview an executive of your choosing. In this interview, you will ask questions about the challenges faced by that executive with respect to leading people and teams, as well as the practices used by the executive to address his or her challenges. In your written submission, you will use course concepts to organize the major leadership challenges faced by the executive, highlight the strategies and practices used by the executive to address the core leadership challenges, and then to evaluate the effectiveness of the executive’s practices related to leading people and teams. You can expect to receive staff feedback on your assignment 4 to 8 months after you submit your assignment....

Nice Capstone

As mentioned in the discussion form, it is really difficult to accept the fact "I have a challenge to accept and I need to solve."

Leadership is not a cake walk and needs vision to become a leader and lead people.

This course has helped me a lot to become a visionary leader. Thanks to every single member of this team. Great job.

The Capstone itself (Option 1) is very interesting, but there is no really graduated evaluation.

Even if the excercise was nice, this capstone project was a disaster. I've completed the project almost 3 years ago and I didn't received a real feedback on my work. I have no hope that it will happen eventually. It's a common situation as anyone from my round did not receive a feedback, we were requesting it on discussion forum and directly in University of Michigan. As the whole specialisation was very helpful, this is the reason why I wouldn't recommend it as the whole to anyone.

I feel robbed. I did not get any feedback on my work. Only a classmate gave their ok "yes, there is something written".

I did not follow the course to get a "certificate" but to learn and to revceive feedback. If you don't have a special purpose for the certificate - don't pay a cent for this.

No lo entiendo, parece que solo un obstáculo con el fin de no obtener el certificado de especialización.

I don't get it, it seems like just an obstacle for getting the specialization certificate.
