This book provides a proven model for the experiential student team consulting process. It uses a pedagogically sound, problem-based learning approach with clear examples from a number of award-winning engagements. Experiential courses are multi-disciplined learning experiences and this book will be most helpful for the unique demands of such a course. Our model allows for a conceptual understanding of the consulting process and the interactions between and among students, the team, the client, and the instructor; and provides a hands-on guide to completing the consulting project.
