MORE ABOUT US
SCVC’s application processes precede the fall and spring semesters each year.
Before applying, prospective clients participate in an intro call with program administrators Erin and Jon to introduce themselves and learn more about the program.
A brief application form is required as an expression of interest in the program. This is followed by a call to assess fit and begin discussing project scope. Once fit is confirmed, clients sign a contract to formalize their commitment to participating.
As project kickoff approaches, the project definition is finalized, and clients sign a letter of engagement that defines the project scope and deliverables.
SCVC’s projects run for 10-12 weeks each fall and spring semester.
Teams of 2-3 consultants are assigned to projects and reach out to clients to set up a project kickoff meeting. The kickoff meeting is used to get to know each other, develop an initial understanding of the client context and goals, and establish ways of working together.
Throughout the project, the consulting team works independently to conduct research, interviews, and analysis. The team and client hold brief, weekly check-in calls to maintain alignment throughout. A midpoint presentation is used to share preliminary findings and clarify the approach for the second half of the project.
In a final presentation, the consulting team presents their recommendations and provides any additional deliverables. The final presentation is followed by a debrief call with program administrators.
