Goals and Objectives

The purpose of this engagement is to describe the opportunity for a Product Development intern to help PSCU design, develop and implement a system that will provide insights into key organizational metrics from the Digital Solutions and Innovation team.

The intern will collaborate with teams in the Digital Solutions and Innovation organization to develop key operational reporting metrics and to create a dashboard to provide leaders with access to overall statistics and measurements related to critical functions. The following are insights into key milestones related to the project, which will be measured:

* Discovery: Interview key stakeholders to understand their teams and to gather insights into the types of metrics their teams can/should track. Prepare a summary presentation to summarize findings with all stakeholders and to outline next steps.
* Determine: Leverage the input from step 1 to research, identify and recommend tool(s) that would be suitable for displaying the summarized metrics across the organization and recommend to stakeholders.
* Develop: Once approval is received, move forward with securing, configuring and building a tool that each stakeholder can use to access the metrics. Establish a process for easy updates and maintenance and present to the stakeholders for feedback. Collaborate with participants from each team to help test to extend knowledge of key product development activities.
* Transition: At the conclusion of the project, students will prepare and execute a transition plan for the project dashboard.
