[11/11/20]   As our semester wraps up, we would like to feature one more BUS-A569 Project. A new client for us is Communications Connections LLC which provides pediatric speech language therapy. The team consists of Elise Anttonen, Danny Amato, and CJ Bails.

"We were given a list of possible projects at the beginning of the semester. The client then let us identify what we thought was most important with the goal of expanding Communication Connections. This enabled us to consider what would be most value-add in our time working on the project as well as what would set the client up for success after we leave.

This lead us to select an optimal electronic health records system provider, create an improved and user friendly website (published in Dec. 2020!), develop a manual to begin the process of accepting and billing insurance to pay for services, and generate a list of recommendations to improve profitability, organization, and expansion.

We were able to develop a timeline for the client that will guide her through the next 5 years, including when she needs to hire employees and how that will affect her business through use of some data visualization techniques.

It has been a great project and a very rewarding semester."

The A569 team of Nico De La Cruz, John Deck and Raagini Vorha have been working with the Washington County YMCA this fall.

"This semester we have had the privilege to work with the Washington County YMCA to develop a feasibility study for a new capital expansion project for their facility. Our work has consisted of interviewing other YMCA leaders who have gone through capital campaigns to see what worked best for them and also inquired with developers and contractors to determine the best fit for their facility. It's been a fantastic experience to see how the process works from a non-profit perspective and work with a real-life situation.”

Thanks for all of your hard work!

This week's A569 Project Feature is for Dillman Farms. The team consists of Emilia Pellegrino, Noah Meiser and Frances Sormillon. Dillman Farms sells products like fruit butters, preserves, mustards, barbecue sauces, and more to stores like Kroger, Ace Hardware, and Amazon. The team is doing a product profitability analysis to figure out the most efficient placement of items in the warehouse and to decide which products are unprofitable and should be discontinued. The students were able to visit the farm, see the warehouse and try the products.
"One of the most interesting products we came across was blueberry mustard, which is about average in profitability for the mustard category."

Joella's Hot Chicken is a fairly new restaurant in Bloomington and a new A569 client for us. This year the team of Ara Ko, Andrew Chang, Jayda Watkins and Bryan Zhang are working on a marketing project for the client.
"Our project focuses on analyzing which marketing channels are most effective in Bloomington and identifying which opportunities exist to build partnerships that allow Joella’s to become a pillar in the community. Our other focus is on reviewing compensation and recruiting to retain management talent.

We’ve learned the most about technological communication and the importance of being in alignment with the client. "

Today's A569 Jim Grandorf Field Consulting Project highlight is a new client, the Indiana Swim Club. Team members are Jen Deegan, Tyler Johnson and Justyce Riggs.

"We are working for Indiana Swim Club to construct a plan to bring an inter-generational aquatic facility to Bloomington. The swim club is looking to have a facility of their own with an Olympic-sized pool, diving tower, therapy pool, etc. to run practices and have meets. We have gathered information on building costs, operational costs and different revenue streams to offset, and potential partnerships for ISC to get involved with to build this facility.

Overall, we are looking into the process of how to bring this type of facility to Bloomington and the feasibility of actually being able to do this in the future."

Our A569 Jim Grandorf Field Consulting Teams have been hard at work this Fall. Today we feature the team working with Cardinal Spirits.

"We are learning a lot about gathering and refining data into useful information. We are also improving our communications skills by meeting with multiple employees throughout the company in order to get the data we need for the project."

Upcoming Free Webinar-Personal Change: Creating New Habits presented by Brenda Bailey-Hughes, Communication Coach and Senior Lecturer at the Kelley School of Business. August 6, 12-1pm.

In our rapidly changing world, we see the need for new habits, new routines, new actions. Sometimes those changes are easy. But more often, change is difficult. We feel committed but the old patterns of behavior stubbornly refuse to budge. And if it’s challenging to get OURSELVES to make lasting change, how much more difficult will the task be to get our teams and organizations to pivot into new behaviors.

Based research compiled by authors Dan and Chip Heath (SWITCH: How to Change When Change is Hard), Alan Deutschman (Change or Die: Could you change when change matters most?), and Robert Kegan and Lisa Lahey (Immunity to Change) this webinar explores the myths regarding change. We’ll learn the attributes found in change-ready organizations and plan ways to develop those qualities in our own teams.

Finally, we’ll explore how we communicate in times of change, especially when the change has been dictated to us by higher levels of authority or other external factors.
