Four students in one of J.P. Allen’s courses (School of Business and Management – SOBAM) recently completed a class project that involved developing a proposal to solve a complex problem we’ve had at the library for some time – automating the reservation process for group study rooms.
Willis, David, Phoebe & Eddie came by Gleeson in early April with their idea. They interviewed me and we discussed some of the background on group study rooms at the library, I shared some study room usage data and along the way they also interviewed the folks in the USF OneCard office as well.
I went by their class today and was amazed by what the team put together. Not only did they come up with an elegant proposal to solve to a thorny library problem, I think they also made an eloquent and convincing proposal to their colleagues in class.
It was great to work with Willis, David, Phoebe & Eddie and I hope to see them in a few years at the USF MBA competition! Many thanks to JP for letting me sit-in on the presentations.
