Providing recommendations based on gathered information


While a “good” grade was a desirable outcome for this project, the goal was to provide the client with valuable information in regards to their target market and reviewing potential changes they could implement. Using techniques learned in class, a thoughtful and well executed research report was presented to the client which outlined our team’s findings throughout the semester. Positive client feedback was given over our findings and certain recommendations were implemented within the company , like the on campus  outreach initiative. As a group, we received at 95% – A on this project.
