Unit 13: PPD

Scenario
or vocational context:


There

Planning a new business venture

Marketing principle and practice
is an increasing emphasis on the need for us to keep up to date and current in
today’s rapidly changing business environment. Many organisations require their
employees to create and maintain a plan of continuing personal and professional
development that is reviewed and shared regularly. It also demonstrates the
individual’s ability to take responsibility for their own development and it
shows their commitment to continuous performance improvement.

Your
existing qualifications, past employment and personal experiences and current
level of study mean that you intend to improve your personal as well as
professional skills. In preparation for this you wish to enhance your prospects
for success by further development of your own and professional skills.

You
plan to do this by evaluating the approaches to self-managed learning. You will
then undertake a personal assessment of your skills and construct and implement
a personal development plan. You must file all of this information for future
reference, either as an electronic or hard copy. As this information is
important and will be accessed, as your future career progresses it must be
carefully and systematically organised.

Task 1

You
must begin the file by preparing detailed notes that:

  • Evaluate approaches to self-managed
    learning (1.1)


  • Evaluate the benefits of self-managed
    learning to the individual and organisation (1.3)

Task 2

The
second section of the file covers a personal assessment of your skills and
development plan. You must:

  • Evaluate your own current skills and
    competencies against professional standards and organisational objectives (2.1)


  • Identify own development needs and the
    activities required to meet them (2.2)


  • Identify development opportunities to
    meet current and future defined needs (2.3)


  • Devise a personal and professional
    development plan based on your identified needs (2.4)


  • Discuss the processes and activities
    required to implement the development plan, including a time management
    strategy (3.1)

Task 3

You are now in the position to be able to
implement your plan. As part of the implementation you should document all that
happens while you are implementing the plan. You must:

  • Undertake and document development
    activities as planned (3.2)

Task 4

It is
important to learn from the progress you have made in order to plan further
developments. In this section of the file you must:

  • Reflect critically on your learning
    against the original aims and objectives set in the development plan (3.3)


  • Update the development plan based on
    feedback and the outcomes from your evaluation (3.4)


  • Evaluate how effective your time
    management has been during the course of implementing this plan and use
    effective time management activities (4.3)

TASK 5

Managing communication assignment help

Finally,
in this section you need to write a reflective report on how you were able to:

  • Select solutions to work-based problems
    (4.1)


  • Communicate in a variety of styles and
    appropriate manner at various levels (4.2)


  • Propose ways in which lifelong learning
    in personal and professional context could be encouraged (1.2)
