Preliminary step: Acquisition of a ﬁeldwork project
Although strictly speaking the acquisition of the ﬁeldwork project is not part of the TSP, its strong inﬂuence on the ﬁeldwork project is so important that it is appropriate to discuss it here. To elucidate, we go back to one of the design criteria of the TSP, namely open contracting. This criterion concerns the formulation of the most desirable assignment via dialogue with the organization. It implies that the student must have the leeway to carry out the task.
