Capstone 1 workshop is around the corner. Make sure you have read and understood the case assigned for prep. You will be assigned with a random group of candidates in capstone 1. You will HAVE TO get a long with them. Your group will not change, so make it work!
Together, you will prepare a report and a case presentation to present to a panel of judges. This will ultimately mark the end of your capstone 1.
Capstone 1 is directly linked with day 1 of the CFE. So make sure that you understand the case inside out.
If you have bad luck and get stuck with group members who are lazy or unwilling to put the time and effort you are, just pull their weight. Life isn’t always fair… And the more time and effort you put in, the better your chances to perform well on Day 1 of the CFE.
Make sure you dress professionally and look great for your presentation. After all, you want to impress the panel of judges. Boys- wear a suit/shirt/tie and ladies you just look professional and pretty. I prefer wearing a suit because you can NEVER be too dressed up!
Lastly, for your written case, make sure you give yourself a week to organize and review your report before submitting it. Leaving things to the last minute will only increase your stress levels!
Good luck on Capstone 1!
