Each participant will be required to complete a capstone project by the end of his/her CPM Program. CPM project requirements will be thoroughly reviewed throughout each module's classroom session. Thereafter, each successive module workshop will provide additional development, direction and feedback.

The purposes of the project are to allow participants to:

(a) address a need at the partcipant's agency that can be focused on and improved in the agency. 

(b) demonstrate effective application of CPM Program competencies by improving service delivery in their sponsoring organizations.

The CPM capstone project requires each participant to lead a problem solving and/or process improvement team to conduct data-driven analysis of a service delivery challenge within his/her work environment. Baseline measures of service quality dimensions must be gathered and analyzed. A service improvement action plan will be developed and implementation initiated by the participant.

 Documentation will be contained within an digital notebook. At a minimum, the notebook contents will include an initial proposal, project background and analysis, statement of the problem, implementation plan and final paper.

The progressive notebook will be submitted at designated times over an 6-month period for review by the CPM project coach. The CPM project will be assessed by program faculty, the CPM project team and agency personnel.
