One of the first things that stood out about the ETL Capstone project was how important it is to be thorough in conducting research at the beginning of a project. Without being diligent and evaluating many options, we would not have found the tools suitable to meet the needs of our project sponsor. This project also teaches students the importance of making slide decks clear, concise and informative. The student presenting is responsible for conveying that information properly and in a way that keeps the attention of the audience. It can be hard to grab the attention of the audience, and boring them with too many words on your slides is a quick way to lose all of their focus. In addition, the key element is to ensure that the needs of the client are met to the fullest possible extent. While we all had our own ideas and experiences with different tools, what was crucial for us was whether or not our tool met the needs of the project sponsor. Achieving an organized stream of communication with our sponsor allowed us to do our research while also making sure his requirements and timelines were met.
