PERSONAL, PROFESSIONAL, AND CAREER DEVELOPMENT
There are four elements to the assignment which should open with an introduction that provides a plan and close with a conclusion. This conclusion should provide a summary evaluation of what you have learnt about yourself as: a person; as a professional; and in respect of your career development. The assignment will require to complete the six exercises in the work book to form the foundation of your understanding to address the following questions:
1. (35% Notional weighting) Describe your personal & career purpose. What needs to happen to allow you to achieve it?
(NB Make explicit reference to what you will proactively do to create your ideal future. This may include brief reference to your learning from other MBA course modules to allow you to shape your environment and gain more of what you want. You may also refer to your MBA Project as a vehicle to assist this process. Suggested headings include: Why this is important to me; who needs to be influenced / can support me; how this plan is going to be implemented and what it requires of me to deliver it to the quality standards required.)
2. (35% Notional weighting) Reflect upon your most recent (significant) career decision. Drawing upon your learning from the six exercises detailed above:
